The design on this quilt is known by many names. Usually when a star, made of diamond-shaped pieces and arranged so that the color seems to be radiating out from the center, is large and found as the centerpiece of the quilt it is known as a Lone Star, Star of the East, Star of Bethlehem, Rising Sun, or Morning Star. If similar, smaller, versions of this star are repeated on a quilt it may be known as a Blazing Star, and if the points of these stars are touching it may be called Touching Stars.
Lula Red Cloud made this quilt to cover the bust of her great-great grandfather, Chief Red Cloud, before it was unveiled and inducted into the Nebraska Hall of Fame in 2001. Lula called this quilt "Red Cloud's Contemporary Robe" and incorporated colors and symbols rich with significance. The red was chosen to represent Red Cloud, the burgundy for the Lakota Nation, the purple for his spirit, the blue for the sky, and the green for Mother Earth. She wrote that "Red Cloud came from beyond the blue heaven and while he walked this earth he was just a common man-represented by the reddish-brown or rusty color." The quilting designs found throughout the quilt mimic designs from Red Cloud's clothing and possessions.
