The Unknown Star Quilt, Circa 1934

Measures 87" X 72". Excellent Condition, approximately 8 to 10 stitches per inch. At the 1933 Century of Progress in Chicago, Sears Roebuck Co. sponsored a quilt contest with a grand prize of $1,000.00. The quilt that won was a pieced one called 'The Unknown Star' by Margaret Rogers Caden of Kentucky. The quilt was subsequently presented to the wife of the President, Eleanor Roosevelt. The next year Sears issued a quilt pattern booklet of this quilt. It was renamed 'Feathered Star' in this publication. This quilt is made from that pattern and dates to 1934.
