The elongated Evening Stars makes a wonderful abstracted pattern. The rectangles formed by the joining of the arms of the stars creates a white diamond surrounded by indigo triangles that can become another pattern throughout the quilt. There are many stars but at the same time it is rather light and airy. White squares are quilted with stylized flowers. Measurements are 68" x 80". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.
