Amish Star Quilt

circa 1925

(, - present)

Unlike some other quilt patterns, cross-stitched initials on Lancaster County Amish quilts typically refer to the recipient rather than the maker. This quilt has the initials "B. F." stitched to the back. Unfortunately, we do not know upon what occasion or when this quilt was made and given to "B. F."
