From the eBay listing: "An amazing rising sun quilt with satellite stars and deep blue print background. I love the way this quilt was designed with the blue background. The center star floats against a blue background sky."
Wouldn't you just love to meet the person who made this quilt, one brave quiltmaker as this pattern is not for the faint of heart. Here's a detail:
Note: the quilt top is from around 1850 BUT it was finished much more recently probably in the 1940's or 50's. That is when it acquired that wild yellow backing.
