This gorgeous hand-pieced quilt features an 8-pointed star in pastel colors of many shades on an off-white ground. The star radiates so that it seems to vibrate. Some call this pattern "Lone Star" or "Star of Texas," some call it "Star of Bethlehem." Few star quilts are as beautiful as this one. The quilting is by hand at 7-8 stitches per inch, very respectable for a modern quilt. This quilt was made during the 1960's or 1970's. It has modern processed batting (creating the dramatic sculptured effect) and a cotton/polyester backing. The border of tumbling blocks seems like a color template for the star. The zig-zag edge is finished by hand. This quilt is in never-used condition. It is clean and ready to use in your home. It is washable in the washing machine (the front is 100% cotton) and may be dried in the dryer. It fits a full-sized bed, measuring 78" X 88." This quilt came from a Chicago estate. Quilt #616Z-2 came from the same estate and is very similar.
