The bold design of this quilt is its strongest asset. The colors are clear and bright and the graphic pattern the quilter chose has a great visual appeal.

As fast as children grow, these sturdy boots must have been worn by more than one family member. They are worn, scuffed, scratched, used and abused and have a hole in the sole. As a result they are as soft as can be and bear the evidence of many hours of play and work. The top cuffs and heels are a smooth saddle-brown leather, the body is a light tan color.The soles are of thick leather and the heels are a hard rubber. 7 3/4" tall and the sole is 7" long. Exceptionally well made...

This traditional Hawaiian applique quilt is done with colors more typical of Pennsylvania than Hawaii. I don't think I've seen another Hawaiian quilt with this rich teal background. It is stitched with echo quilting, typical of Hawaiian quilts, that follows the pattern of the applique. Hawaiian quilts are always striking with their strong central pattern but the colors of this example make it particularly so.
Measurements are 74" square; very good condition.

This is a particularly fine example of the desirable New York Beauty pattern. The colors really seem to give off the glow of sunshine. It is well quilted with overlapping circles that are a terrific complement to the round pieced pattern. The New York Beauty pattern was named by Mountain Mist in 1930 when they published it with recommendations for this particular color combination and quilting patterns...
