Description : An 8 point star pattern pieced quilt. The pattern is known by several names including "LeMoyne Star", "Le Moyne Star", "Puritan Star" or "Lemon Star".  The points are made of various geometric and floral patterned materials pieced with a white background. There is some wear and fraying along the edges.
Commentaires : There are a few theories surrounding the original design and creation of the LeMoyne Quilt, otherwise known as the 8-pointed star pattern. One of them suggests that the first of these quilts may have made an appearance at Versailles, home of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette of France!  Allegedly, Jean-Louise Moyne designed the tiles of this pattern for Versailles and also sculpted for the palace in the early 1700s. This pattern then ended up on his cousins coat of arms, Jean-Baptise and Pierre LeMoyne, who would go on to found New Orleans. From here, the pattern became a part of early American quilting. The LeMoyne star has eight points per star on the quilt, with each of the outside angles measuring 45 degrees. Its a precise, and therefore more complex, quilt pattern to make.
Fonctions : This quilt was made by three sisters in Hopewell Cape NB. The women were Beatrice (Palmer) Ayer, Ethel (Palmer) Stewart and Eva Palmer. Beatrice was born in 1892 and died in 1970, Ethel was born in 1882 and died in 1972 and Eva was born in 1897 and died in 1982. They operated a Bed and Breakfast out of their family home and this quilt was likely used in the Bed and Breakfast. The Palmer family was originally from Dorchester, although the sisters were born and raised in Hopewell Cape. The Palmer family owned and operated one of the largest shipyards in Dorchester during the 1800s. The donor inherited this quilt from her Mother-in-law (Beatrice Ayer).
