Antique Crazy Asterisk Quilt on eBay

Take a look at this one-of-a-kind antique quilt that was recently sold on eBay. Made in 1870 it measures 58" x 76." This caught my eye probably because of those crazy, improvisational "asterisks." The quiltmaker added some embroidery and applique for good measure too. I really like the cheddar, black and red in this quilt...and the pink too. I like the funky "Gee's Bend" flavor of this quilt!

This quilt sold for $202.50.
