Perfect colors that are beautifully shaded make this Evening Stars crib quilt a winner for either a child or adult. The lighter blue used for the arms of the stars is a simple touch but it adds sophistication. Four Patch corner blocks are another indication of the care taken by the maker as is the good quilting. Excellent condition; measurements are 32 1/2" x 41 1/2". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920's.

This Log Cabin Streak of Lightning crib quilt is so nicely scaled that one does not need a border to know it's the real thing. Red centers in Log Cabin quilts are often thought to represent the hearth. These solid reds really pop against the printed fabrics. With very close examination, one sees some slight soiling on some of the logs but it in no way detracts from the impact. The pattern looks equally good vertically or horizontally. The quilt measures 40" square. Pennsylvania origin; ...click for details

$895. 

Rarely does one find a Drunkard's Path in crib size. This makes perfect sense as most 19th century mothers would have wanted to steer their children away from such a life path. Fortunately, in the 21st century we can see beyond that to the wonderful abstract design of the Drunkard's Path pattern. This example is particularly nice because of the indigo color and inner triangle border. It is in excellent condition. Measurements are 39" x 39 1/2". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880. ...click for details

This Ohio Amish One Patch doll quilt reminds me of a Paul Klee painting. One row of squares is just off center enough to make it really interesting. The rich colors contrast well with the lighter squares and border. Quilted in diagonal lines with brown thread. Made of cottons. It is professionally mounted on a stretcher measuring 9 5/8" x 11 3/4".

Eleven hundred forty triangles make for a wonderful Thousand Pyramids crib quilt. That number includes only those in the body of the quilt. The corner blocks add another hundred and forty four.

$485. 

This Windmill Blades (aka Pineapple) Log Cabin doll quilt is simultaneously crude and sophisticated. The concept of a central Blade with a piano key border could not be better. Pink strips are regularly placed in the corners and middle so it seems that the maker was intentional in her choices. Execution, though, is a little wonky which actually adds a lot of charm. It is mounted on a stretcher measuring 18 1/4" x 19 1/4". Excellent condition; made circa 1880's in Pennsylvania.

$925. 

Rarely does one see a crib quilt as a scaled down version of a Straight Furrows Log Cabin. This fine example is in pristine, un-used condition. The back is a Bars pattern often seen in the quilts of southeast Pennsylvania. Made circa 1880. Measurements are 40 1/2" x 47".

$1450. 

This Hourglass Crib Quilt on a striped ground is an unusual but very successful pairing of patterns. The choice of satin fabrics is also out of the ordinary. It is in pristine condition and is mounted on a stretcher measuring 31" x 31 1/2". It is very effective as an abstract design both vertically or horizontally. Made in Pennsylvania; circa 1890.

It is interesting that this Irish Chain is actually created totally with Improved Nine Patch blocks. Positioning them as the maker did makes for a lovely diagonal Single Irish Chain. The same red squares were turned on point to create a very effective diamond border. Quilted with patterns of diamonds. Measurements are 36" x 44". Columbia, Missouri origin; circa 1880.

The quilt is professionally mounted on a stretcher measuring 35.75" x 46.5".
