Q8287 Ohio Star with Sawtooth Border
72 x 74 (182.9 x 188 cm)
This is a beautiful Ohio Star quilt, created as the country was entering into the Civil War. It shows no hint of the strife that was consuming the country; just a wonderful and serene sense of artistry and design. The maker of this fantastic quilt had a confident feel for color; choosing to combine intensely dark blues and browns from the 1840's through the 1860's with a lovely circa 1860 double pink.
Each Ohio Star block is set on point with double pink joining blocks between. The double border is comprised of an inner sawtooth border measuring approximately 3 inches, and an outer 7 inch border comprised of two different double pinks. This quilt has a muslin backing and binding, and has been entirely hand pieced and hand quilted using medallion and outline designs. In unused condition and professionally hand washed by Betsey, this antique beauty is pristine and ready for display either on a bed or as art for your wall.
