chintz star quilt

This chintz variable/evening star quilt c. 1830 is one of my favorites and probably my best internet/auction house buy. Brown, pink and red prints (many glazed) and carefully arranged by maker who had access to (and money for) a lot of fabric including enough for one background fabric. It serves as a reminder that not all early quilts are scrap quilts. It is a large quilt, an indicator of early date. Probably made in Pennsylvania. Picture taken while it was being appraised at Quilts Etc. in Sandy, Utah.
