Antique Pieced Quilt: Star of Bethlehem/Harvest Sun

About

American antique quilts are collected by aficionados from all over the world. The extraordinary skill of the quilters who made them in the 19th and early 20th-Centuries is a symbol of American creativity and determination. This exceptional example, pieced of hundreds of tiny patches, is surrounded on three sides by an applique floral vine. The anonymous maker was highly skilled in both piecework and applique work, as well as exceptionally fine quilting, resulting in an unusually rich and powerful graphic. Wonderful for a wall hanging.
