This Elongated Stars quilt is an unusual combination with the Hourglass off blocks. Both are strong patterns that work well together. It is quilted throughout with clamshell patterns. The border is an especially unusual fabric that has a Native American feel. The quilt is made of two white fabrics. The difference one sees in color is not dirt but rather the slight variations in materials. It would probably even out with a wash but I did not feel it was totally necessary. The quilt is from the Poffenberger Family whose homes were on the Antietam Battlefield in Maryland. Measurements are 88" x 102". Made circa 1870.
