    Quilt

    Hi everyone, Does anyone know what this quilt pattern is called? This is a huge quilt! It also looks very old like it was made in the 70's or so. It has been hand quilted all over the top of the quilt. I've added some close up pictures as well. I tried to take a picture of the border and the shadow of my arm got in the way , sorry. Thanks for your help.

    I don't know what it is called, but is certainly a beautiful piece of work! Where did you find it?

      My first thought is that it is a Lone Star. Wasn't big enough to cover the bed so they made some more stars and added them to it here and there. It sure is pretty!

        I'm with Trish, my first thought is it is a variation of the Lone Star. It is very beautiful.

          I am thinking a lone or texas star too.

          It is quite lovely

            That sure is a nice quilt, I love the bias binding, too. Someone did very nice work on the central star. But when you say it is old, do you mean from the 1870's?

              I really don't know how old this is I didn't mean to say 70's It could be 1870, 1900,1920's I don't know. I just know I have never seen fabrics quite like this before. Someone also took the time to hand stitch on areas hearts inside of hearts inside of hearts it's beautiful. I know it took whomever made it a long time to do so.
