LeMoyne Stars with Tulips Quilt: Circa 1830; Pa.
This is an early and unusual quilt combining LeMoyne Stars and Tulip patterns. It is made with a wonderful array of early 19th century fabrics. The tan sashing was the perfect color choice to blend with the blues; browns and pinks of the quilt. Written in one of the pink tulip blocks is the inked signature of C.E. Cronkite who may have been the maker. Opposing top and bottom corners are variations of the primary stars. Measurements are 75" x 88". A tag sewn to the back indicates it was probably in a museum collection. Excellent condition; circa 1830. Lancaster County, Pa. origin.
