This Hexagons quilt is actually the same block throughout but the change of color gives it a definite center medallion. It is in pristine, unwashed condition. The quilt is made of a tremendous variety of late 1930's printed fabrics, many of which are feedsacks. The backing is a solid red. Measurements are 74" x 84".
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.

Lord & Taylor Manhattan even took out a full-page ad in The New York Times for a "Meet the Designer" day to introduce Keefe and a new line of furnishing fabrics...

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...

This is a Vintage Hawaiian Quilt, made in the 1930's of red and white cotton. It is hand sewn and machine sewn, possibly by a treadle sewing machine. It has a four pointed central design, and a red and white applied border. It measures 84 x 80 inches, and is in fair condition, some stains, I tried to photograph them . On the selvage of the cotton material it says in red “Honor Pure Finish”. It has been noted that that was used in the 1930's, but no more information about that company.
