Bethlehem Star, circa 1850 from Pennsylvania. One can't help but smile when looking at this quilt! Part of my antique quilt trunk show, Quilt Masterpieces.
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."
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
