Often, when an antique is too good to be true, it is just that. In the case of this waist pocket with hearts, it is guaranteed to be the real thing. This unusual appliqued waistpocket dates to about 1800. It is in excellent, unwashed condition. The only condition flaw is that part of the waist strings are missing. There is enough existing to see that they were a handwoven tape. Top and part of side bindings are pieced from several different fabrics. Measurements are 14" tall x 11" at ...click for details

Glorious is the best way to describe this Lone Star quilt with chintz border and applique (broderie perse). The colors are as vibrant as the day it was made in the 1830's. It is finely stipple quilted with diagonal lines. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. The chintz retains its original glaze. There were a very few nicks in the chintz border. Rather than risk any additional, I had very fine netting sewn over the border to stabilize it. It is evident to the touch but not to the ...click for details

$5200. 

This Mennonite Windmill Blades Log Cabin quilt (aka Pineapple Log Cabin) is one of the finest I have had the pleasure to own. It is made of wool challis with deep, rich colors and five borders that repeat fabrics within the quilt. The logs are a mere 1/4" in width. Corner blocks of diagonal stripes are the ultimate finishing point. Measurements are 72" x 83". Annville, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1870. Excellent condition.

Several elements make this Starbursts quilt quite exceptional. First is that the stars have seven points which one rarely sees. They are wonderfully scattered throughout the quilt in a variety of sizes. To my knowledge, this intricate applique border is unique. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. It is from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania; circa 1860. Measurements are 83" x 93".

$1800. 

Alternating light and dark Octagons create an additional hourglass pattern between the blocks. In addition, one can see the overall pattern as squat shaped stars. A beautiful chintz border compliments the unusual deep forest green printed fabric of the interior. The piece is very well quilted and in excellent condition. Measurements are 83" x 85": made circa 1850.

$2250. 

The densely packed buildings give this Schoolhouse quilt an abstract quality. Rarely does one see the buildings abutting one another as they are in this example. It is interesting to see how the buildings are created almost entirely of a variety of rectangles. A selection of printed fabrics soften the very geometric pattern. Excellent condition; chevrons pattern quilted throughout the border. Measurements are 90" x 82" Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880's.

$1675. 

This Light and Dark wool challis Log Cabin quilt is done with unusually light tones. A note pinned to the quilt explains that the fabrics were from two dresses of the maker, Louisa Dreibelbis. One can only assume they were among her favorites. While the front of the quilt is entirely of fine wools, the backing is made of cotton pieced in a Bars pattern. The quilt is in excellent condition. There is a very small darned area in one corner where it may have gotten caught on something. Measurements ...click for details

This Touching Stars quilt is brilliantly designed. Red Stars make up the centers of the four large Eight Point Stars and are repeated in all of the off blocks. Using white circles as the center of the stars set on point adds to the diamond effect around the central group of four stars. Flowers for the quilting patterns are an interesting contrast to the geometry of the quilt. Measurements are 78" square. A water mark on the back does not show through on the front. Pennsylvania origin; circ ...click for details

It is easy to see how this very geometric pattern came to be named Carpenter's Square. The three dimensional effect is quite striking with the lines appearing to be interlaced. Unlike most renditions of this pattern, the maker varied the indigo prints throughout adding further interest. Quilted with diagonal lines and diamonds that are at a 45 degree angle to the pieced strips. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measurements are 76" x 78".

This powerful and most unusual Russian Sunflower quilt is exceptional in several ways. The combination of the Sunflower pattern with the diamond diagonal grid is brilliant. While in some ways the two patterns appear quite different, in actuality the repetition of diamond shaped pieces in both makes for wonderful harmony. The indigo ground is not often seen and the appliqued hearts throughout the border are indicative of the warmth with which the quilt was made. It has been professionally launde ...click for details

$1850. 

This unusual Log Cabin quilt is actually three different patterns.There is a Streak of Lightning surrounding the Star center as well as a Light and Dark pattern above and below the Star. It is extraordinary to realize that the same Log Cabin block when turned various ways can create such variety. The quilt is in excellent condition; circa 1880. Pennsylvania origin; measurements are 67" square.

$675. 

This classic Nine Patch quilt is as crisp as the day it was made some 135 years ago. Clearly, it was stored away and never saw the light of day. The background is a dark chocolate brown print with a variety of plaids alternating with solid white in the Nine Patch blocks. Measurements are 67" x 78". The backing is plain white cotton. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

$3850. 

This Thousand Pyramids is quilt perfection. It is finely pieced with a glorious array of mid 19th century fabrics. The double triangle appliqued border surrounds an undulating quilted vine. It is interesting that the border is machine appliqued. Rather than being done to save time, machine quilting in the late 1860's was often done to show off that one had a newfangled sewing machine. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurements are 92" x 94". Maryland origin; circa 1 ...click for details

It is difficult to characterize this unique quilt. The Carpenter's Wheel center is surrounded by Flying Geese; King's Crown and Rolling Stone corner blocks. I'm not sure whether this is enough to characterize it as a strippy sampler quilt. The origin is also something of a mystery. While it was found in Pennsylvania, there are features (the chocolate brown and blue as well as the muslin backing) that make me wonder whether it was made in the South. What I do know, is that it is an ...click for details
