LeMoyne Stars Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania

LeMoyne Stars quilt with stars on an lovely small scale. They measure about 3 1/2" in diameter. Most are red with solid tobacco brown but scattered among the two outermost rows are some with green calico instead of brown. Who knows why the maker made this variation? It has a well chosen border of squares set on point . It is finely quilted with clamshell patterns. The Stars pattern is strong enough to look great when opened fully yet because of the small scale, it is equally effective folded as an accent piece. Measurements are 66" x 74". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.
