VQA-15 Dolly Madison's Star

VQA-15  Dolly Madison's Star
69" x 56"
This is a sweet quilt that was loved and used. The colors are pleasing and I like the two borders where the motifs from the blocks are repeated. The hand quilting is fairly spare, outlining each star and block center. A hexagon is quilted in the white "star" spaces mimicking the one in the pieced star block.

Some of the patches appear to have faded more than others, suggesting they were possibly salvaged from an old garment. the quilt is in good condition with only one little hole and one seam split that I could find. There is a little soil on one side, but this quilt is none the worse for wear. It is very pretty.

This quilt earned $75 for the AAQI.
