Blazing Stars Quilt 

Unidentified Quilt Maker
Circa 1890
80 x 90 inches
Origin likely Pennsylvania; Found in Virginia

Fine hand quilting and unusual color distinguish this bright and graphic late-19th century Star quilt.  I found it in Virginia, but my best guess, based on the bold color and printed back, is that it probably was made by a Pennsylvania quilt maker. 

It's in excellent condition, with strong and sturdy fabrics; the quilt is thin and lightweight.  There are a few stains, the worst of which appear in one place on the printed yellow border (top right of my photo).  I have not washed the quilt.

There is very good hand quilting, done in nice, even stitches, and designed in elaborate designs including feathered wreaths in the solid red alternate blocks.
