I recently became the reluctant owner of this pretty pink eight-point star quilt that no one else wanted. Although it's not a family heirloom, I still appreciate it. I think it was machine-stitched, possibly with original flour sack fabrics. The cotton quilt contains six stars in a row, by eight rows. It's just large enough for a full-sized bed, small by today's standards. It was apparently stitched sometime in the last mid-century.
I don't see a consistent pattern in the way the colors are laid out. Instead, there are a few bright colors, some contrasting opposites, then some pastels.
It's interesting how the florals are at home next to the abstract bubbles and cubes.
It's a cheery little quilt, and it shows some wear that indicates it was loved and used by its last owner.
