CONBP5 Ohio Star with Zigzag Border Quilt
73 x 76 inches
Pennsylvania or New York
A frame on a painting can take that work of art from being wonderful to
exceptional. In the case of this quilt, that is exactly what we have. We
have a perfectly executed graphically wonderful Ohio star quilt with a
zigzag border, which has created an amazing piece of textile art.
Personally, I would love to see this quilt hung as major textile art on
The fabrics, some of them early enough that they are block printed, are various combinations of Indigo and Chrome orange. The white fabric used on the front of this quilt is a very fine cotton. The backing is a white linen, indicative of the era. The 7-1/2" blocks have been turned on point, creating the Ohio star pattern. This quilt has a 7-1/2" border, 3/8" of which is a separately applied white binding. The zigzag border is executed in two segments, creating what I see as motion. The innermost border is executed from triangular shapes. The outermost border of Indigo and Chrome orange is a row of triangles measuring 4-1/2" by 3-1/4" by 3-1/4". These triangles are the same size as the triangles used to create the innermost zigzag border. Approximately 3/8" of the outermost triangles are partly covered by the binding. The Ohio stars are outline quilted.
The innermost white blocks are cross hatch quilted in a 1" grid. The outermost half square is quilted with arc quilting. The double zigzag border is quilted with straight line echo quilting approximately 1/2" apart. I believe there are at least ten different beautiful Indigo and Chrome orange prints used in the creation of this textile masterpiece.
