Lone Star, ca. 1950

Attributed to Mary Duncan

Pickens County

Cotton

Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts Association Purchase

MMFA #2004.21.1

 

The twentieth-century Lone Star attributed to Mary Duncan is a riot of multi-colored and multi-patterned diamonds, assembled so that the fabrics and colors are scattered throughout the star. The irregular shapes in the quilt’s background disrupt the sense of regularity and balance, and the riot of color in the star creates the impression of spontaneity and visual excitement.

 

Mary Duncan is a self-taught American quilter from Pickens County. This example presents a true scrap star, and quilter Mary Duncan avoided arranging the color in a regular pattern. Her division of the background into two shades of blue, however, creates the impression of a star rising in a night sky.
