Patchwork Star Quilt
This beautiful, early star quilt has an unusual, softer palate. A message in Latin is embroidered on the reverse of the quilt at the top reads, “Noctem quietam, et finem perfectum concedat nobis Dominus omnipotens. R. Amen.” which translates to, “May the almighty Lord grant us a quiet night and a perfect end.” The quilt was in the collection of Austin and Jill Fine.
