Bold String Stars (aka Spider Stars) quilt done in the fabrics typical of southeastern Pennsylvania in the late 19th century. The blue calico ground and double pink sashing and border scream Lancaster County. Solid colors used in the center of the stars highlight their octagonal shape. The dark solid colors are indigo, not black as they may appear. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. In the upper right corner is the name Bertha done in paint. Measurements are 77" x 80".
