This Lone Star (aka Star of Bethlehem or Texas Star) quilt is enhanced by the multiple borders and unusual Nine Patch corner blocks. Nine Patch is not a combination I recall seeing with the central star pattern. The colors are mellow and beautifully combined with just enough red to make it pop. The quilt is in unwashed condition. It is nicely quilted with combinations of diagonal lines. Measurements are 76" square. Pennsylvania origin; made 1880's.
