Ohio Star and Nine Patch 1920
ca 1920. Made in Southern Indiana, USA. This is all wool, probably made from men’s suits. As a result this incredibly unique piece is quite heavy. The colors put together in the pattern are quite innovative, however, and include red, black, brown, green and tan. The piece is entirely hand done, both the piecing and the quilting. The binding is twill ribbon, and the backing is hand dyed. Perhaps you can appreciate the effort put in to this primitive quilt, which was made for warmth in a cold cabin. Some signs of moth damage. Condition is very good.
-Item is pictured on a modern size queen bed.
