This LeMoyne Stars Quilt is combined with outstanding trapunto quilting. Two different pinwheel type stuffed work patterns alternate with the pieced stars. Inside the chintz border is a continuous trapunto feather. The soft color palette is unusual for an early 19th century quilt and combines beautifully with the elegance of the needlework. Measures 85" square; Pennsylvania origin. Excellent condition.
