    I just found this on the swiss version of ebay. The seller says its dated around 1840 and the price starts at $ 7200. The size is 82x75".
    Have no intention to buy :lol: its a bit too pricy for my taste.
    But I like the pattern.

    What do you think?

    it's interesting that they put a blue sash around the corner sections.

    This quilt is incredible. I'm not picking it apart but I notice that many seams don't match up. This quilt tells me that beauty is not in perfection. The fabric and pattern works together for an amazing quilt. I would love to know the history of this quilt:) Wish I could afford it!:)

    Dont you think it would look better with blue sashing around all sections?

    it is awesome but when I look at the center of the star I feel like I am falling into it. Is that weird or what? Or is it an optical illusion? Or is it my cataracts? Does it do this to anyone else?
