Antique Star Quilt - Month of Antique Quilt Treasures

Early antique signature quilt from Hunterdon County, New Jersey (western New Jersy). Dated 1841 and 1842. Wonderful fabrics including a fab wild paisley sashing. More than 70 signatures and some intricate drawings including a sketch of tiny Bible

The full quilt -it is a striking quilt and so colorful and elegant. Part of my Signatue Quilt trunkshow.

 Love this Prussian Blue star fabric
