LEMOYNE STARS EARLY ANTIQUE QUILT wide white border
   

 



A simple but elegant historic treasure in impeccable unused condition. A fine and classy quilt obviously cherished with respect by subsequent owners, it is a generous size that reflects its creation in the early 19th century when huge quilts were the tradition among the wealthy. Its several fabrics are beautiful early printed cottons in reds, greens, blues, browns. A great choice for a quilt historian, an interior designer, or just anyone who derives pleasure from living with lovely antique things. Somewhat minimalist in design with the varied stars placed on an ivory white background and framed within a extra wide white border. The quilting adds visible texture -- one inch crosshatch quilting in the body of the quilt and curvalinear vine quilting for the boder.
