Feathered Stars Quilt done in a most unusual, saturated color combination. The background is a deep red on black print on which the blue calico stars really "pop". The background print in the body of the quilt consists of red grapes, leaves and vines. The same color print is used on the border but one with different leaves and vines. The backing of the quilt is a Bars pattern of irregular widths. There is some discoloration to the back but the front is in excellent condition. Measurements are 72" x 92"; Pennsylvania origin.
