This Lone Star is beautifully offset on a fire red background. The soft colors of the star contrast well with the very strong background. The brown used only for the center star makes a great focus. The body of the quilt is stitched with a pattern of diamonds and a cable in the border. The backing is a bars pattern in red and green calico. It is reversible to this side making for an entirely different quilt. Measurements are 84" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.
