   PATRIOTIC FLAG QUILT WITH 48 STARS AND BEAUTIFUL QUILTING, WWI ERA (1917-1918), CANTON ON THE WAR STRIPE, PENNSYLVANIA ORIGIN:


 

Description:

48-star, 13-stripe, patriotic quilt, probably made in the patriotic fervor of WWI (U.S. involvement 1917-18). Note how the blue canton rests on a red stripe. This is an unusual and highly desired trait among flag enthusiasts, some of whom believe that the placement was purposeful and represents the fact that our nation was at war. When this feature is present, we say that the canton is resting on the �war stripe�.

The quilt is expertly made. The quilting itself is beautifully executed. Unwashed and unused, it was evidently presented as a gift. This is just the kind of construction and state of preservation that quilt collectors prize. Made of cotton and entirely hand-sewn. Found in Pennsylvania.
