$9500. 

This stunning Nine Patch variation has all of the bells and whistles one hopes for in a Lancaster County Amish quilt. The colors are the classic jewel tones used in Lancaster wool quilts. The same Nine Patch on point blocks are used throughout but the use of color creates a center medallion. It is well quilted with a variety of floral patterns. Condition is excellent; measurements are 84" square. Made in the 1930's.

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.

This deep, inky colored Mennonite Hexagons quilt is made from men's suit materials. The blue centers effectively lead the eye throughout the quilt. Blue quilting thread combines with the color of the centers and further adds some spark to this darkly colored quilt. It is dated November, 1935. Measurements are 60" x 75". Oddly, the back of this heavy wool quilt is a cotton sateen. It was turned over to form the binding and shows some fraying but the rest of the quilt is without apol ...click for details

While the Barnraising Log Cabin is a very quilt traditional pattern, this example looks far more modern than one expects from the late 19th century when it was made. The magenta fabric has a thin black stripe that perfectly ties in with the solid black material. With close examination, one can see that the corners are actually log cabin blocks done entirely in black. The border is quilted with a cable pattern. Pennsylvania Mennonite origin; made circa 1880. Both front and back are wool. Measurem ...click for details

It is professionally mounted on a stretcher measuring 9 5/8" x 11 3/4".

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. The flame red centers and inner border add bounce to the entire piece. The border is quilted with a chevrons pattern. It is made of medium weight wools with a cotton back. Circa 1890; Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 70" x 73"; excellent condition.

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

This Mennonite Hearts and Gizzards quilt is made with a rich combination of colors. It is black with what can best be described as a rosy terra cotta. Embroidered stitching in white lightens the entire piece. The wide triangle border is a nice continuation of the geometric pieces between the hearts. The curved and geometric patterns of the quilt alternate as to which is primary. The maker took the time and care to make an additional twist to the corner blocks. In sum, it is a masterful version o ...click for details
