c1950 orange “feathered star” quilt SOLD

Sunny orange vintage quilt, made in the late 1940s or early 1950s and in excellent condition– it appears to have never been used. The dramatic pattern is “Feathered Star” and contrasts vivid orange motifs with a creamy off-white background. The fabric is cotton, and there’s no batting; this is a “summer weight” quilt and quite thin, although still warm. It drapes beautifully.

Overall size is 68″ by 86″. Machine pieced and hand-stitched with about 7-8 stitches per inch. There is a 3″ wide solid orange border and the reverse is solid off-white.

This quilt is sturdy enough for everyday use and can be laundered on the gentle cycle.
