Vintage LeMoyne Star Quilt Treasure
While traveling through southern Missouri yesterday, we stopped at several antique shops to browse. I found this quilt at the same flea market a year ago but passed it up. Since it was still there, I decided it needed to come home with me. The quilt is 82x66 inches with 6.5 inch blocks and 2.5 inch sashing with cornerstones.
The flour sack backing has the stamped images facing the batting. This is the darkest image and I can make out "Delicious Flour" in the printing along with some wheat stems surrounding the wording.
This is only the second completed vintage quilt I have purchased. I usually go for blocks or quilt tops. I will post the first quilt I have purchased later on, along with 3 more quilt tops and quilt blocks that I purchased this past week.
