This very bold Lone Star (aka Star of Bethlehem) quilt is made even more so by the intense blue background. It is what is referred to as "double blue" and seen most often in the quilts of southeastern Pennsylvania. The inward facing sawtooth border is an unusual twist. Most often, the triangles are facing out. It is well pieced and quilted. The quilt is in unwashed, pristine condition. Measurements are 80" square. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.
