This stunning pre Civil War indigo and white Feathered Star has everything we look for in a fine blue and white quilt of this era. Meticulous hand piecing with exceptional hand quilting and comprised of a single deep indigo fabric - this one with tiny white dots. The triangles in the 'feathers' measure a tiny ¾ inch wide. The large stars measure 11 inches feathered tip to feathered tip with white joining block between. The triple border measures 4½ inches wide in total; each of the sawtooth borders measures a mere ¾ of an inch wide with the white border between at 3 inches wide.

Tiny and precise hand quilting includes ⅜ inch diagonal parallel line stitching in the feather star blocks and the three borders, with ½ inch diagonal cross hatch stitching in the white joining blocks. The backing is fine cotton with a separately applied ¼ inch binding in the same indigo print used for the stars. Beautiful.

An outstanding piece of textile art for collectors of Blue and White 19th century quilts! From the McCarl Collection. In perfect condition this quilt has been professionally hand washed by Betsey and is ready for your home.
