$975. 

This Victory Star Crib Quilt also goes by the pattern names of Hands All Around and Yankee Pride. Regardless of the name, a Lemoyne Star sits at the center of eight half stars. The geometry of the pattern is nicely balanced by a swag border. Several of the brick colored lobes of the border show some "popping" but it is not throughout. Nicely quilted. Measures 36" x 46". Made circa 1870; Pennsylvania origin.

It is difficult to imagine a more lush garden of chintz fabrics, exquisitely placed together. The maker cleverly created an open diamond in the center frame which is the perfect transition from the straight lines of the outer borders to the circles in the center. It has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. There are some water marks on the back that do not show on the front.

This Mennonite Diamond in a Square quilt has the unusual addition of a square within the diamond! It is made of wools that are in very good condition but do have a few tiny holes, as shown in thumbnail detail.
