This unusual piece combines several patterns in a center medallion format rarely seen in mid West Amish quilts. The center LeMoyne Star is surrounded by blocks of Bow Ties and Chinese Coins that are irregularly set. The maker of this quilt had both imagination and skill. It is well pieced and quilted with several different patterns. The quilt is all cotton fabrics; circa 1920. It is in mint, unwashed condition. Measurements are 68" x 80".
