Evening Stars Crib Quilt

$1,285

About

What initially appears to be a straight forward Evening Stars crib quilt actually forms an additional pattern. The consistent use of the same white with printed brown triangles forming the points of the stars also makes an Hourglass pattern surrounding a center diamond in a square. The rich brown fabrics blend well with the blue/green corner blocks. Quilted with circles in the small triangles and four lobed leaves in the off blocks. Measurements are 44 1/2" x 45 1/2". Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860.
