Lone Star Quilt with Chintz Applique: Ca. 1850; Del.

This elegant Lone Star Quilt was done with the utmost care and precision. It is quilted with tiny stitches in a variety of floral patterns. The selection of fabrics and the way they were placed is exquisite. The center of the star is repeated in the clusters of flowers around it. These fabrics were cut from the same material used for the outer border. The quilt is in excellent condition. The colors have mellowed consistently. It can be washed to create a brighter background but that does not seem necessary. Measurements are 104" square; circa 1850.
