EIGHT POINT STAR STUFFED POSTAGE STAMP ANTIQUE QUILT
This amazing quilt is pieced of one inch squares with a stunning addition - each is pillowed - stuffed or filled with cotton to make the surface three dimensional. Such a technique is rarely seen in quilt making. I have encountered it a scant few times made in silk in the Victorian era. The wool here presents a challenge just because of the material.The jewel tones are richly saturated colors thanks to the fine wools used. Bordered with narrow scalloped red felt. Probably PA origin. I think it would be dramatic hung on a wall in home or office.
