This is an antique handsewn cotton quilt. It is quite beautiful. It has star blocks using black background fabric with tiny white stars. It seems it might have been washed at some time as it made the black fabric in many of the black patches deteriorate. I show that in a few of the pictures. It is not exactly falling apart but the quilt should only be displayed as is. The only fabric to give is the black with the tiny stars. It is clean with no odors. It measures about 70" x 78".

An ebayer wrote and thinks this is from 1880-1900. I disagree, but am publishing the opinion.
