Just unearthed from a North Iowa/Minnesota estate! Antique "EVENING STAR" handmade quilt. Popular blue and white color combinationalways eye catching! Dates early 1900s to early 1920s.
Not the tiniest quilting but neat and tidy. The sawtooth edging is done in long lengths (not pieced) and machine sewn down. It was done at the time of making and not added later.
Quilt measures 82" x 96". I have not cleaned or treated this quilt. Feels clean and gritty or dusty from storage. There are some small use/age spots on the front and some foxing or storage yellowing spots on the back.Also, a much larger area of yellowing near a corner on the back (see last photo). A good soaking will surely get this out. There is an old tear on the blue in one block.
It's a tear as opposed to wear or chewing. And I see a very small puncture tear on the white background. You'll have no problem using or displaying this quilt!Check out more items in My Store and other Auctions!
