"Star of Bethlehem" is one name for this quilt; another is "Lone Star," or "Star of Texas." This is a Depression-Era creation, utilizing all solids. The star radiates nicely, especially in the center. The bright yellows and oranges make this a cheerful quilt. The edges are finished a double-striped border and "Prairie Points," or folded triangles of cotton sewn into the edge. As far as I know, prairie points were used only in the Midwest; this quilt was found in Illinois. The fabrics used are all 100% cotton, making the quilt machine washable (cold water). It may be dried in the drier on cool. The quilt was machine-pieced, as were most of these stars, and lays perfectly flat. The quilting is by hand, double-line, at 8-9 stitches per inch. This quilt is in excellent, original, unfaded condition. It is clean and odorless. It is shown on a full-sized bed and measures 72" X 86." This quilt would be a good one to hang, as it has much visual impact.
