Here's a variable stars quilt top using bright colors from the Pennsylvania Dutch palette.
We found this top in Lehigh County, southeastern Pennsylvania. It's hand pieced except for the border, and measures about 74 x 75 inches. It's in excellent condition, with no problems we could find.

Price: $195

Squares measuring about nine inches contain 8 point stars with 4 1/2 inch red centers and yellow rays on a Lancaster blue background. Red calico sashing and a seven inch chrome yellow border complete the composition.
From the same estate we have another top in the same pattern that matches almost exactly, slightly larger.
Two different red prints and two different yellows are used.
From the back, hand piecing stitches can be seen.
