Six Point Touching Stars Quilt with Provenance - SOLD(Item: Q-743)
Offering this colorful 6 point stars quilt from an Erick, Oklahoma estate. It is unused and excellent/mint condition and has never been washed. It was from the Henry and Mary McCarty estate. It was probably made by Mary. Mary and Henry owned and operated a grocery store on old Route 66 in Erick. Their only son, Boyd age 60 in 1997, had the auction of their antiques and household. The quilts that were in the auction had been stored in an old unused freezer, and had cedar chips in the bag they were stored in. That was one place that mice couldn't get to. The quilt is all hand quilted by the piece at 6 spi. The separate red binding was stitched on by hand. The backing is the same red shade. Looks like some feedsacks were used in making this quilt. Erick is a small western Oklahoma town that old Route 66 went through and also know as the home of singer and songwriter, Roger Miller.
