Last week I posted about one of two quilts that were given to my mother from family friends. Here is the second quilt in that pair also made by Epsi Addaline Grant - first cousin to Ulysses S. Grant.
A patchwork star pattern - the exact name, I'm not sure.
It's in beautiful browns...
...with a border of teal floral.
Hand pieced and hand quilted.
The corners were done in a print where part of the pattern has worn away probably due to the dye color of the stripe - revealing the old cotton batting. This is an old quilt. I wish I knew exactly how old. My best guess is still late 1800s.
