Vintage Hand Sewn Grandmother's Broken Star, Lone Star All Cotton Quilt 80"x68" For Sale

Vintage Hand Sewn Grandmother's Broken Star, Lone Star All Cotton Quilt 80

We understand this variation of the Lone Star or the Bethlehem Star is called "Broken Star". But we might be wrong. Please check the pattern and judge by yourself.
The quilt was washed by us, as it has some dirt in it, which is now gone. It is clean, but it has one small stain that didn't wash out, at least in this occasion, as you'll see below. You might be able to get rid of this stain later, as it seems to us it is washable.
The quilt has a little bit of batting, but not much, and not enough to be used as a comforter. It was probably made to be a (strikingly beautiful !) decoration as a bedspread, or as a throw on furniture, or even maybe to be place on a wall.
It is all cotton fabric, maybe feed sacks, but we can't tell, and it is all hand sewn. We made a couple of close-ups so you can confirm this by yourself.
The measurements are 80" by 68". The bed used for the photos is a queen size, 80" by 60". The quilt, we believe, would look better on a full size bed, but you please be the judge of that (the points of the outer star would be handing a little on the sides, in a full bed).
Please notice that because this is a hand made bedspread, the "squares" that define the 'broken star" pattern are not all of them perfect squares, but the folk artists who made this had to compensate a bit here and a bit there to achieve the better shape for the arms of the stars, and they did that by changing a bit the shape of the "squares". That is apparent when you see the quilt from above, as one of our pics show.
Shipping to Canada is less than to other countries. Please ask us for a cost of postage quote if you are in Canada.
