This North Star quilt pattern also goes by the name of Star of the East. Regardless of which direction you prefer, it is a wonderfully three dimensional pattern. This example has an unusual, playful border of hexagons along the blue band. The solid blue arms of the stars alternate with printed fabrics of the 1930's, some of which appear to be feedsacks. The backing is the same yellow printed fabric as the centers of the stars. The quilt is in excellent condition; nicely quilted with a waffle ...click for details

This interesting Drunkard's Path quilt is more dense than most - perhaps an indication of more inebriation than most. It has a whimsical quality with irregularity to the inner applique border. It works well with the scalloped edge and binding to create a very full border treatment. Excellent condition; circa 1930. Pennsylvania origin; measures 66" x 75",

It is fascinating to see how the same block in varying colors can create such a complex Log Cabin quilt. I believe the only difference is that the centers of some are squares while others are divided into two triangles. This exceptional Log Cabin is in unused, pristine condition. Measurements are 78" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1910.

$1450. 

This One Patch quilt made almost entirely of plaid cotton flannels is both simple and sophisticated. It took an artistic eye to put together this large combination of plaids in a palette of mauves, grays and browns. The four deep indigo squares are wool, also plaid. The backing is also a plaid flannel with striped flannel on either end.Measurements are 64" x 74". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.

$1450. 

This Hexagons quilt is actually the same block throughout but the change of color gives it a definite center medallion. It is in pristine, unwashed condition. The quilt is made of a tremendous variety of late 1930's printed fabrics, many of which are feedsacks. The backing is a solid red. Measurements are 74" x 84".

SOLD 

This One Patch quilt is like a series of miniature Trips Around the World. Each block consists of concentric postage stamp size squares set on point. The consistent use of yellow centers pulls together the variety of printed fabrics. The sashing is a printed fabric of the same green tone as the solid color border. Measurements are 60" x 70". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1930; excellent condition.

Densely pieced Irish Chain quilt in soft, creamy colors. It is made with mostly printed fabrics and a few solids, all from the 1930's. Each square is less than 1" to a side. It is nicely quilted with curvilinear patterns. The border is a nice continuation of the main pattern. Measurements are 70" x 82". Pennsylvania origin; excellent condition.

This comforter is made of cigar flannels from the early 20th century. The flannels were given as premiums wrapped around packages of cigarettes and small cigars. The largest flannel is the American flag in the center with slightly smaller flags of Mexico; Italy; Russia and Greece for the corner blocks. All of the other flannels are of Native American motifs. It is in excellent, unwashed condition.The border is a light blue cotton sateen. Measurements are 74" x 82". Pennsylvania origin; ...click for details

While this Sawtooth Diamond quilt may "read" pink on some monitors, it is actually a red chambray, that is red with white threads running through it. The unusual border adds a wonderful new dimension to this traditional pattern. It is in mint, unwashed condition and well quilted with a variety of patterns. The border may have been completed at a later date as it is a newer fabric but I see no reason for it to be a replacement as the quilt shows absolutely no signs of wear. Made circa ...click for details

This wonderfully graphic quilt "reads" as both Streak of Lightning and Tumbling Blocks. It is difficult to know whether that was the maker's intention. The use of solid colors heightens the effect of both patterns. It is as well crafted as it is designed. Measurements are 70" x 73"; excellent condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1910.

Wonderfully graphic Windmill Blades Log Cabin quilt (aka Pineapple Log Cabin) in the unexpected colors of lavender and white. The diamond border adds to the impact. It is interesting that the centers of each block repeat the border pattern. The backing is the same lavender as used on the front. It is in pristine condition; measurements are 72" x 86". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.

What young girl wouldn't have sweet dreams sleeping under this charming quilt? The center is what I believe to be a gingerbread man surrounded by a puppy, chicks, an elephant, a kitten and some indeterminate animals. All have embroidered faces. It is well quilted with a variety of patterns. The center is crosshatched with cables in two borders and flowers in the corners. The outer border is quilted with overlapping circles. There are two very tiny (smaller than a pea) spots next to the centr ...click for details

It is very well quilted with floral patterns in the center of each block and a particularly graceful feather in the border. Measurements are 76" x 90"; excellent condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.

This Lancaster County Amish Nine Patch Diamond in a Square quilt has it all. The four very dark green squares in the center diamond and the Nine Patches around them create an additional subtle diamond within the central one. Rarely, rarely does one see a Diamond variation surrounded by Nine Patches. The quilt is made of wool with stars quilted in the solid color blocks. The outer border has the classic Lancaster Amish feather pattern quilting. The photos do not do justice to the rich jewel tone ...click for details

$8700. 

This handmade 48 star flag quilt has the name of each state and its date of admission to the Union embroidered on each star. It is accurate with the exceptions of Arizona and New Mexico. They were meant to be admitted in 1911, as is written on the quilt. In actuality, bureaucratic delays caused them not to be admitted until January, 1912. One can surmise from this inconsistency that the quilt was made in 1911 in anticipation of Arizona and New Mexico statehood. It is in excellent, unwashed cond ...click for details
