This unusual Baltimore Album Quilt incorporates traditional and original blocks that are a combination of bold and delicate. Six different baskets of flowers are all original in design and well done. The crossed tulips, on the other hand, are traditional and fairly simple. Two unusual blocks are chintz applique (broderie perse). The most unusual block is the chain with a padded square on point with a loop. It may be meant to be a potholder. The variations in style indicate that this album quilt ...click for details

Made by Mary Hostetter Miller in Ronks, Pennsylvania (Lancaster County); circa 1880.

Measurements are 62" x 78". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.
Bold String Stars (aka Spider Stars) quilt done in the fabrics typical of southeastern Pennsylvania in the late 19th century.

This dynamic quilt is made of a unique combination of Lone Star (aka Star of Bethlehem) and Tulip patterns. The way in which the tulips are placed around the star gives the overall pattern a whole different outline. Continued placement of the tulips in the corners really fills out the entire composition. Signed "Edna Adams 1931" in embroidery. Pennsylvania origin; Measures 74" x 76". Background is a very pleasing dusty rose color.
Rarely does one see a crib quilt made of silk since it is clearly too fragile for a child to use. This Log Cabin may have been made as a presentation piece or perhaps a table cover. It would certainly be elegant hung on a wall. The lights and darks very effectively create the diagonal lines of the Straight Furrows Log Cabin variation. Three sides of the border are diagonal stripes with the top a solid band. The back is wool challis. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1870; excellent condition. Measureme ...click for details
