The Moon and Stars quilt pattern finishes 66 1/2″ x 88″

Moon and Stars was made by Harriet Ellen Cox of Basque County, Texas, in 1896. The information with the quilt credited “Grandpa Cox and Mrs. Bartec, a friend” with the hand quilting. Although the original quilt was meticulously hand-pieced from templates, our modern pattern has you appliqué the orange shapes to the navy background pieces, a real time-saver.
