The small scale of these Variable Stars could not be more appealing. They are made of a nice mixture of primarily brown and green prints. The stars are contained with a wonderful zigzag border. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Pinned to the quilt is a label saying "Made by Susan L. Mathews about 1888 Property of Julia Gorham Crane". This may refer to Susan Blodgett Mathews (1838-1907) in Columbia; Coos County, New Hampshire as I was told the quilt was from New Hampshire or Vermont and this is the closest name that turns up for the date. Measurements are 65" x 74". Each star block is less than 4 inches to a side.
