Sawtooth Diamond Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania

$1085. 

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

$2450. 

Yes, I've named this quilt Tulips and Wreaths but that is not totally descriptive. The intertwined shapes within the wreaths and extending beyond are nothing I've seen before. To my knowledge, the quilt is a unique combination of traditional flowers with imaginative shapes. The large tulips are very effective in forming a frame with the smaller ones filling in the off blocks. It is beautifully quilted. It has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measurements are 9 ...click for details

$2450. 

This bold barn raising log cabin quilt beautifully combines patterned wool fabrics to create added interest to the eye. The use of light fabrics in the center diamond draws your eye immediately to this focal point while the many additional prints lead you throughout the entire pattern. The four triangles of color within the red frame are particularly well placed. Upon close examination, one sees that the border is actually a herringbone pattern combining solid blacks with printed fabrics. Measur ...click for details

$2700. 

This Mennonite Lone Star quilt could not be richer in color. The deep green background perfectly sets off the white quilting which is elaborately done with wreaths. The diamond pieces making up the star are smaller than usual adding more waves of color. The orange zig-zag border beautifully repeats colors within the star. Lebanon County, Pennsylvania origin. 92" square. Unwashed condition with two small smudges and two area of light fading visible in thumbnail photos.

$1875. 

The Oakleaf blocks are so densely packed in this appliqué quilt that they form a secondary pattern of groups of four green leaves. The border, in addition to continuing the leaves, has hearts throughout. The Oakleaf is a traditional pattern but placement of the blocks in this example gives it an abstract quality as well. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860. Measurements are 74" x 86".

sold 

Small size antique calico doll quilt all original, not a cut down larger quilt. The fabrics used are rich in color and it is all hand sewn and hand quilted. It does have fabric weakness in four of the squares due to the corrosive acid in some brown dyes, see photos. The quilt is 14" by 11". The back has the best very early brown calico print with no holes or tears. This is a stunning early doll quilt.

$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

SOLD 

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

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.

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

This Princess Feather is beautifully quilted with a clamshell pattern. The center of each Feather has the unusual feature of a Lemoyne Star. Whether intentional or not, the white areas around it create the look of a flower. The border continues the Feather theme with the addition of individual leaves. It has been professionally laundered and is in pristine condition. Measurements are 86" x 88". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860.

$1875. 

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.
