$425

A very beautiful pieced star quilt top in calicoes of over dyed green, madder red, and red with double pink. The overall effect is a graphically stunning red and green quilt top. Hand and treadle machine stitched quilt blocks measure 26¾ x 26¾ with 1¾ inch sashing between. The 2 inch outside border has been chewed in places, however if removed from the rest of the top has enough fabric for use as a narrow binding. There are a few seams to restitch and a ¼ inch hole in one green diamond. The top has been washed previously as the fabric is soft. Visible storage discoloration should come out with washing after quilting has been completed.
