CENTER STAR QUILT / artist unidentified, New England, 1815–1825, glazed wool, 100 1/2 x 98 in., American Folk Art Museum, gift of Cyril Irwin Nelson in honor of Robert Bishop, American Folk Art Museum director (1977–1991), 1986.13.1

Made by Marta Berta Theresa Dubberke (1899-1963) who was born in Germany and immigrated to USA in 1939 – the second time. She lived in total poverty with no indoor plumbing or electricity even up to 1963. Yet, Berta loved to sew and this quilt is a testament to her wanting to have something pretty to brighten her life. Berta never had any money in order to buy fabric so she made do with gifts and pieces from friends and she also loved the color pink in huge amounts as this quilt testifies. It is made from the ubiquitous polyesters of the 1940’s.
