This is one of the most interesting cotton Crazy Quilts that I have seen. The indigo background certainly contributes to the punchy look of the quilt. The blocks are a nice combination of crazy and traditional patterns. The center block cleverly combines with the four surrounding it to create something of a medallion. A note sewn to the quilt reads "A Present To Harry W. Keller From Grandma Keller 1900 74 years". The quilt is dated 1900 but the fabrics are all from the last quarter of ...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

This Robbing Peter to Pay Paul quilt is done on an unusually large scale. Each block measures about 12 1/2" square. 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

$2950. 

This traditional Hawaiian applique quilt is done with colors more typical of Pennsylvania than Hawaii. I don't think I've seen another Hawaiian quilt with this rich teal background. It is stitched with echo quilting, typical of Hawaiian quilts, that follows the pattern of the applique. Hawaiian quilts are always striking with their strong central pattern but the colors of this example make it particularly so. Measurements are 74" square; very good condition.

This original quilt pattern brings several things to mind. The circles can be seen as ship's wheels with the curved appliqued borders as gentle ocean waves. Another, less romantic, possibility is machine gears. The viewer might see additional possibilities. Regardless of the interpretation, it is an imaginative pattern in a beautiful shade of blue and well quilted. It has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measures 84" x 88". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1 ...click for details

$1875. 

This New York Beauty quilt is one of the best I've seen. Rarely does the maker include a vine and leaves between the quarter blocks. The placement of starbursts in the center of each Beauty make them look as though they are flowers atop the vines - pretty clever. It is well quilted, pieced and appliqued. The quilt is in excellent condition; made circa 1920. Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 66" x 80": excellent condition.

$14,500. 

This Lancaster County Amish four patch in a nine patch quilt is brilliantly arranged.The maker used the same colors throughout but placed them so as to create the unusual overall X pattern. This might be a one of a kind. The solid color blocks and border are beautifully quilted with floral wreaths. The body of the quilt is in outstanding condition. There is some fraying to parts of the binding. Measurements are 72" x 78. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1930.

$2100. 

To the best of my knowledge, this quilt pattern combining Black Eyed Susans with Barnraising is an original. The green has probably lightened with washing but the quilt remains vibrant and strong. The egg yolk yellow/ orange of the Barnraising perfectly continues the Black Eyed Susan theme. Measurements are 67" x 80". Probably Southern origin; circa 1900.

This is a particularly fine example of the desirable New York Beauty pattern. The colors really seem to give off the glow of sunshine. It is well quilted with overlapping circles that are a terrific complement to the round pieced pattern. The New York Beauty pattern was named by Mountain Mist in 1930 when they published it with recommendations for this particular color combination and quilting patterns. Variations of the pattern had been known prior to 1930 but not with this name. It is in out ...click for details
