Antique Pieced Quilt: " Feathered Stars"

About

Unusual graphic rendition of traditional pattern in rare period fabrics. Border is a striped floral print with exceptional colors of indigo and green. Backing is an extraordinary coppery seaweed print. Fabrics in the quilt were most likely originally glazed chintz. Although the glaze has been gently washed away over time, the fabrics retain their strong, rich colors and impressive vitality. Finely hand-quilted in swag and double row stitchery patterns.
