$2200. 

This unusual Victorian silk quilt beautifully combines several patterns. It has Tumbling Blocks; Stars; Hexagons and Crazy. In addition to emphasizing the hexagon, the use of light colors for the Crazy pattern creates a halo effect around the central Crazy Star. The pride of the maker is evident in the embroidered inscription on the back "From Ma 1880 1106 pieces". It is in excellent condition; Pennsylvania origin. The front of the quilt is silk with the exception of black velvet aroun ...click for details

$725. 

This One Patch quilt is like a series of miniature Trips Around the World. Each block consists of concentric postage stamp size squares set on point. The consistent use of yellow centers pulls together the variety of printed fabrics. The sashing is a printed fabric of the same green tone as the solid color border. Measurements are 60" x 70". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1930; excellent condition.

I have had this bed for almost ten years now. I was attracted to it due to its simplicity and the adorable miniature quilt and mattress. It is a light weight wood and clearly handmade with tiny nails and glue. The quilt is cotton material/ pale pink and cream with roses...hand sewn and hand quilted. The mattress is stuffed and made from cotton material adorned with rose. Both quilt and mattress need cleaning; stained and I have never cleaned it...not really sure how to clean mattress with its st ...click for details

$2450. 

A more accurate name for this quilt might be a one patch in that it is made of consistently small squares throughout. The diagonal placement of light fabrics gives it the Irish chain effect. It is in pristine, unwashed condition with a huge variety of late 19th century fabrics. The backing is a bars pattern as is often seen in quilts of southeast Pennsylvania. This is from Kutztown; circa 1880. Measurements are 80" x 90".

$8500. 

About once a decade I am lucky enough to find an Alphabet quilt. This one is particularly special because it is featured in two of the early, most well known books about quilts and folk art. It is a full page illustration on page 136 of "America's Quilts and Coverlets" by Safford and Bishop (1972) and on page 272 of "The Flowering of American Folk Art" by Jean Lipman and Alice Winchester (1974). The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. ...click for details

$1285. 

The elongated Evening Stars makes a wonderful abstracted pattern. The rectangles formed by the joining of the arms of the stars creates a white diamond surrounded by indigo triangles that can become another pattern throughout the quilt. There are many stars but at the same time it is rather light and airy. White squares are quilted with stylized flowers. Measurements are 68" x 80". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

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

Densely pieced Irish Chain quilt in soft, creamy colors. It is made with mostly printed fabrics and a few solids, all from the 1930's. Each square is less than 1" to a side. It is nicely quilted with curvilinear patterns. The border is a nice continuation of the main pattern. Measurements are 70" x 82". Pennsylvania origin; excellent condition.

$1875. 

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

This is a beautiful yosegire patchwork futon cover dating to the early 1900s.

The word "yosegire" literally means 'the sewing together of different fragments', and in this case the fragments are a wonderful variety of woven silk fabrics, including shibori, rinzu, chirimen, and some textiles taken from Meiji era kimonos. The fabrics are delicate and the resulting atmosphere is graceful as a whole. ...click for details

This comforter is made of cigar flannels from the early 20th century. The flannels were given as premiums wrapped around packages of cigarettes and small cigars. The largest flannel is the American flag in the center with slightly smaller flags of Mexico; Italy; Russia and Greece for the corner blocks. All of the other flannels are of Native American motifs. It is in excellent, unwashed condition.The border is a light blue cotton sateen. Measurements are 74" x 82". Pennsylvania origin; ...click for details

This Victorian doll quilt has so many different elements that it is difficult to characterize it. On the one hand, it has many features of a Crazy Quilt. The two fans in the corners, for instance, are often seen on Crazies. The multiple diamonds in squares in the center, though, give it a very different feel, as do the American flag; variable star and pinwheel. In all, it's a wonderful combination. It measures 18 1/2" x 19" including the lace border. The front is silk with a beauti ...click for details

$6500. 

This wonderful floral album quilt is a combination of traditional and original appliqued blocks. Many of the original ones are done with reverse applique and look very much like the scherenschnitte paper cutouts popular with Pennsylvania Germans. Each of the four corners has a variation of a wreath pattern giving cohesion to the composition. The swag and tassel border beautifully frames the light and graceful applique blocks. Unlike many album quilts, the components of this are equal in weight a ...click for details

$550. 

This traditional Sawtooth pattern quilt is elevated to a different level by the use of three borders. Technically, the innermost is actually part of the Sawtooth blocks but visually it serves as part of the frame. The interior of the quilt is a brick or adobe color with the two outermost borders in red. It is in unwashed condition. It has a few light smudges that I do not feel warrant a wash but it certainly can be done if one chooses. Measurements are 65" x 78". Pennsylvania origin; c ...click for details

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
