This Mathematical Star Quilt is extraordinary for both its design and techniques. It combines the pieced work star with chintz applique (broderie perse) and trapunto quilting. All could not be more finely done. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in pristine condition. Made in Baltimore; circa 1830. It is a true masterpiece of the quilter's art. Measurements are 90" square.
