Unidentified Quilt Maker
78 x 78 inches
Found in Pennsylvania
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Surrounded (on three sides) by wide borders of handsome late nineteenth century chintz, this LeMoyne Stars ... in Bars ... looks good on a wall or on a bed.
All hand quilted ~ and much more decoratively than I typically see in a pieced quilt with so much color and printed fabric on its face. The stitching may not show well on the front, but this quilt maker chose a muslin back where they do show.
Elegant ~ without being at all stuffy. And folky ~ without being funky.
