Star of Bethlehem Quilt

About

Dramatic Star of Bethlehem Quilt (aka Lone Star or Texas Star) with beautiful printed fabrics on a solid white ground.
Surrounding stars set in squares are an unusual variation. Quilted mostly with patterns of circles that are a nice counterpoint to the straight lines of the pieced pattern. Professionally laundered; pristine condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860. Measures 84" square.
