Red and orange used for the center and outlines of this Lone Star quilt make it look as though it's on fire. The colors contrast very effectively with the gray/green background. The background color has softened from its original but it has done so consistently and is a very soothing tone. The border is quilted with a cable pattern and squares surround the star. The front is all solid colors with a red calico backing. Measurements are 82" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.
