To say that the fabrics in this Variable Stars quilt (aka Ohio Stars) are stunning is an understatement. It is a beautiful combination of pinks and indigos that blend perfectly. The chintz border is cleverly placed to give the effect of an undulating ribbon.The backing is a plain cotton. Quilting is basic - it is all about the pattern and fabrics. Measurements are 95" x 100". Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1820's; excellent condition. Colors are deeper and more rich than appear on my monitor.
