$1285. 

This richly colored LeMoyne Stars quilt is made with fine wool challis on the front and back. The blue print of the off blocks is arranged so as to give the effect of diagonal lines throughout the quilt. Sewn to the quilt is a note that reads "Made in the year 1877 by my mother Clara Kerr Thorne Mrs. MIlls Bratton My Mother". This is a little confusing but I believe Mrs. Bratton is the daughter of the maker. Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 65" x 78". There is a s ...click for details

This exceptional Bullseye Quilt is one of a handful known. All were made in the tiny town of Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania in Berks County. In the 2010 census, Lenhartsville had a population of 165. At this point, it is unknown who made these quilts. Each has a slight variation in colors and patterns around the central bullseye. All have an inner diamond border. Was it one family who "owned" this pattern or was it passed around the village? It is a fascinating question waiting to be ans ...click for details

The placement of color gives this Mennonite Log Cabin Quilt more than its basic Light and Dark pattern. The light grays form a diamond around the maroon corners.

This One Patch Charm Quilt is more than its name. The blocks are set on point and colors are used to create a Nine Patch Center Diamond. The term Charm Quilt refers to one in which no fabric is repeated. Many are very similar but on close examination, it is evident that they are not the same. This quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurement are 70" x 76". Oley valley, Berks County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

This extraordinary pictorial quilt depicts images that are both fierce and friendly. On the bottom are hounds chasing stags while on the top is a tree of life surrounded by birds, one of which may be a dove. It's a shame not to be able to speak with the quiltmaker to learn more of her intent but perhaps it is a metaphor for both the danger and kindness of life. Or am I reading too much into it? The quilt is from Pennsylvania; circa 1870's. Measurements are 77" x 78". It is in ...click for details

The name of this quilt pattern, Old Italian Block, is a mystery to me but it seems to be well established. This example is done with a glorious combination of stunning fabrics. All are in unwashed, pristine condition. The outer border is a highly glazed chintz. Oddly, the back is a cotton muslin. One would have expected a "dressier" choice given the front but perhaps she the maker indulged all she could with the front of the quilt. It is quilted throughout with blocks of diamonds.

This unusual Herringbone pattern is fabulously three dimensional. It is made of a very nice selection of late 19th century solid and printed fabrics. The backing is a red paisley print to which it is totally reversible for a very different quilt. The paisley is also used for some of the strips on the front of the quilt. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880. Excellent condition; there is a seam separating the quilt from the border that is a little wonky but that appears to have been in the making.

This Mariner's Compass quilt is one of the most exquisitely crafted that I have seen. Each Compass is made of 106 triangles, all tapering to a fine point. The ground is beautifully quilted with concentric wreaths. And in case all of that wasn't enough, the maker finished it with a double triangle border! Measurements are 70" x 80"; made circa 1870; excellent condition.
