From Pennsylvania, the maker of this exceptional quilt took care to sign and date her work: "Susanna Johnson March 27, 1846". It boasts an intense indigo background--unusual for a textile of this era. The 28 star pattern is unique; we know of no other examples like it. 7-8 stitches per inch. This quilt comes from a home in Southeast Pennsylvania.
Dimensions: 84" x 90"
