Starbursts Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania

This unusual Starbursts quilt is especially complex because of the pieced diamonds background. Five starbursts and four other geometric elements seem to float upon it. It is made of a wide variety of late 19th century fabrics that are well blended. There is some light soiling on some of the light color fabrics but it does not detract from the dramatic impact of this unusual quilt. Measurements are 82" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.
