Wild Goose Chase Quilt: Ca. 1880; Indiana

Animated Wild Goose Chase Quilt (aka Spiderweb) with tiny triangles. Each measures about 1" wide x 1/2" tall. The small size in addition to placing them vertically and horizontally makes for a very dynamic pattern. Red stars at the intersections are the perfect highlights to give focus to the overall pattern. Most of the red stars are solid fabric.They are turkey red; not as orange as on my monitor. Several are a printed fabric with red and a few were probably red that faded to tan. Measurements are 70" x 78"; Howard Co., Indiana origin from the family of Mildred Clark.
