FINISHED QUILT: 75 1/2˝ × 75 1/2˝ • FINISHED STAR: 36 1/2˝ × 36 1/2˝
Made from cottons by an unknown maker; Maine; c. 1890
The original quilt is rectangular (67˝ × 84˝) and the stars and corner diamonds were appliquéd. If you wish to reproduce the original, piece the background to whatever size you want and appliqué the star and corners as desired. The pattern that follows is for a square quilt with an appliquéd center star and pieced corner diamonds.
