Quilting/LoneStar quilt


QUESTION: Thank you for your response on the broken star quilts.
I have one more quilt for you to look at.
Do you think this might have been made later also?
Thank you for your time.

ANSWER: Hello Friends,

This one also looks "new."  

I wish I knew who could help you.

Where are you?  Maybe I will know someone
near you who might be able to help.

QUESTION: I am in Phoenix AZ I just learning about
quilts. At least now I know a little more
than before. Thank you

Hi again,

I do not know anyone personally in Phoenix who might give you an opinion on your quilts, but I would suggest that you might want to find a small fabric or quilt shop near you  (not a giant outfit like Joanne's, but a Mom and Pop business).  They may know about your quilts, or have a lead for you on someone who does.

Good Luck and again thanks for contacting me.
