Delectabale Mountains Quilt: Dated 1929; Pa.

This is a beautiful example of the much sought after, Delectable Mountains quilt pattern. It is done in a pleasing soft shade of pink. The center forms an Evening Star pattern and it has a wonderful zig zag border framing all. Embroidered in a corner is the name Edna M. Adams and the date 1929. It is the same Edna Adams who signed the Star quilt item # 1238674, although this time she added her initial, making her easier to trace if one wanted. It is in excellent condition and very nicely quilted. As with the Star, Edna chose an unusual quilting pattern for the border, using a design of ferns in this quilt. Measurements are 72" x 74": Pennsylvania origin.
