: Dated 1850-1870, this cotton quilt was produced by Mary Jane Agnew Davidson of Boardman, Ohio, in Mahoning County. The quilt is pieced with rows of diamonds that radiate out from a central eight-pointed star to form a large octagonal center block, including colors white, blue, red, yellow, green, pink, and beige. There are four colored borders alternating with solid white that are mitered to fill out the top to make a square. The quilt has an applied yellow binding with a white cotton backing. The sunburst is quilted with an outline stitch that is carried out to the edges of the quilt, creating a diamond grid across the mitered corner borders. View on Ohio Memory.
