Pattern Name: Kansas Star Variation

Age: 1940s

Quilting: fussy quilting throughout - hand pieced and hand-quilted

Material: BEAUTIFUL indigo blocks with cotton shirting; natural cotton backing

Measurements: 78x66


Heritage: This quilt was found in Alabama and is one of the most unique quilts I have ever seen. The combination of the deep blue indigo backing with the various shirting and novelty print fabrics is outstanding. The piecing is simply perfect - the corners hit just right! The quilting is also amazing and the back is just as beautiful as the front! I am partial to the angular triangle pieces quilts and this one is exceptional. It is beautiful!


Condition: Overall the piece is in great condition for its age. The top shows a few small stains and a few little seam pops - but nothing major to note at all. The back shows a few areas of light staining, but it has not moved through to the front of the quilt. Overall, the quilt is strong, sturdy and really a stunner of a piece. 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.
