Long Description:
Following information from the Quilt Trail Project (visit link)

"Isabell Krouse Sherfey, grandmother of the current owner, made the all-cotton quilt from which this unknown pattern is copied. Isabell made the quilt at her homeplace, probably with the help of her three sisters, all of whom were trained by their mother, Susanna Wine Krouse, in the art of spinning, weaving, knitting and crocheting. The Krouses grew flax and cotton to use in their spinning and raised sheep for the wool to card and spin."

Update: The new NE Quilt Trail bulletin calls this pattern "Ohio Star". And provides an address of 1069 West Oakland Ave, Johnson City, 37604.
