Signature -Friendship Stars Quilt- Dated 1920 - SOLD(Item: Q-848)
Offering this unused mint condition Signature or Friendship 8 Point Stars quilt. The quilt was never washed and appears that it was just stored and unused. Often these quilts were kept in the cedar or blanket chest and only brought out for special times. There's lots of names on the quilt and it is dated 1920. It is all hand quilted at 6 spi and the binding was brought over from the back and stitched down by hand. Some of the names on the quilt include Edna Kerschner, Erma Nabor, Clara Busch, Hulda Ernst, Geraldine Hanks, Ruby Lee Tillman, Maurine Johnson, Alic Baumgart, Edna Knauf 1920, Leona Gemaehlick, El Vina Frick, Alice Balzer and more. I acquired it in Custer County Oklahoma,,, but haven't done research on these names,,, so I'll leave that up to someone that might want to know more aobut these women.
