Tied Star Quilt at the American Folk Art Museum
Take a close look at the top photo. This is a whole cloth quilt, tied with pink and yellow yarn. There are star designs done in pink, and the background is done in yellow. The ties are approximately 1" apart. I've never seen a quilt where the main design element was made with tied yarn! The yarn is fuzzy from being washed. The maker is unknown. Dated 1900-1940. United States.
