A red and white cotton quilt with cotton wadding. The design is a framed star in the style of Elizabeth Sanderson. The quilt is machine-pieced and hand-quilted.

The Sanderson Star design is named after its creator -
Elizabeth Sanderson. Elizabeth was an apprentice to the quilt marker and draper George Gardiner of Allendale, and her iconic style and expert skills made her more famous then her tutor. Her reputation spread, and she set up her own business, taking live in apprentices to learn the trade. This striking eight pointed star design is usually pieced in two contrasting colours with alternating fabric colour borders.
