The Gatherings is offering a wonderful Depression (1930's-1940's) era hand quilted quilt in the Texas Star - Lone Star pattern. I don't believe the quilt has ever been laundered and possibly never used. The white fabric of the quilt is muslin - more than likely feed/flour sacking.
Overall size is 70-1/4" x 78". The star, itself, measures 53". Making up the star, is a combination of solid cotton fabrics in a well-designed laid out colors scheme. It is a striking quilt. Each diamond shaped piece used in the star is 1-1/4" x 3-1/2". The stitching is 8 stitches to the inch.
There are three patterns of quilting used on the quilt. The green border, measuring 5-1/8" wide, is quilted in a diamond pattern, as is the inner border of white. A pattern developed around the larger star, are four quilted smaller stars measuring 14-1/4" square. Each of these stars are situated on a "corner". Alternating with these stars and the points of the large star, are triangle shaped quilting motif.
Take a good look at the qult as I think you will notice this lovely design. Edges of the quilt are turned inward and machine stitched.
Condition: Although stored for many years, you will find a tad (just a tad) of oxidation and a tiny tiny damaged area in one of the colored blocks. In my opinion, I feel it was caught on something. Certainly does not appear to be weakness of fabric. This treasure from the past, I feel would not be a disappointment.
