Pattern Name: Star of the East
Quilting: hand pieced and hand quilted in utility quilting style
Material: BEAUTIFUL home dyed red, pale yellow, and fugitive blue cotton with white cotton backing
Heritage: This quilt was found in Illinois and is quite the stunner! It's an expertly pieced and quilted Star of the East. The indigo dyed fabric has faded and you can see some spots on the fabric where the dye did not originally take. The quilted is pieced well with an open utlility style of quiltling. The quilt is thin iwth very little batting. The edges are thin and done in a back to front style and hand sewn. Overall a wonderful and striking quilt!
Condition: Overall the piece is in good condition for its age. The most wear to the piece is at the edges, but there is some staining, but the staining isn't really that noticeable. There is some fading, but nothing too noticeable. There is normal wear to the quilt but nothing untoward and no holes or tears. The piece is really soft, too! Quite unusual, but it has likely been well cared for. This would not be a quilt to wash, but to leave outside in the sun (under a clean white sheet) for a few warm, sunny days. This is the traditional cleaning method for these types of quilts and would be appropriate here.
