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...

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; circa 1870.

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...

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...

A doll dress, probably sewn by a little girl with pagoda sleeves and 1860's fabric. The dress is 17" long with a gathered bodice and tiny little cartridge skirt pleats. A large button secures the back. Oversewn with darker thread at some point in the waist and sleeve hem areas. Several stains in the back and the fabric is faded. I have included an image of the interior of the dress where more of the original fabric coloring is visible. A really lovely item for display.
