Six-pointed pieced scrappy stars with pale pink solid alternating blocks
Brown polished fabric is deteriorating
71" x 85"
This is the third of the collection of 10 antique quilts passed into my care. Lovely matched points and the fabric has such fantastic patterns!
Late 1800's? The tag says so, but the detail doesn't appear expert. It is all hand-stitched - even the long seams.
The fabrics seem right and the brown has deteriorated (the old brown and red dies were very acidic and notorious for deteriorating the fabric), but so many of the reproduction fabrics now a days are very believable.

the hole. All the stars with this fabric has deteriorated.
I haven't quilted much this year; it lost some of its appeal after making them as a commitment for other people and not for fun. But the stripes and plaids and paisleys really make me itch to get back to my machine.
