Stars and Bars w/ Border Quilt/ Exhibit 2010 SOLD(Item: Q-648)
Offering this patriotic WWll quilt called Stars and Bars or Stars of Stripes. This pattern is also known as Liberty Stars. It may be an Aunt Martha pattern. This is one of the quilts exhibited this past year from my collection at International Quilt Festival, Houston Tesas, 2010, in the "America Collects- Patriotic Quilts" Special Exhibit. The Houston, Texas show featured the exhibit of 31 pieces in the Special Exhibits area. The quilt is in excellent condition, having some slight fade as shown near the bottom edge star. It is hand quilted at 7-8 spi. There is a border of bars that adds to the quilts design, as shown. The binding is old feedsack fabric, as it had been repalced at some time in it life. It is stitched on by hand. There are 5 pointed stars quilted in the ground areas. The quilt displays well and is one of the popular WW ll quilt patterns.
