$2850. 

This applique quilt is light, airy and graceful. The body is quilted with a crosshatch pattern with half wreaths along the border and full wreaths in the corners. The leaves look like grape leaves which is why I think the circles are not berries but that is open to interpretation. It has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860.

Wonderfully scaled Baskets quilt with a fabulous zig zag border. The baskets face both directions so that when placed on a bed, both parties would see the baskets facing toward them. Each basket measures 3 3/4" tall. It's interesting that the triangles filling the baskets look like a Flying Geese pattern. The light color is a very pale, buttery yellow that is almost white. Nicely quilted and in excellent, probably unwashed condition. Measurements are 72" x 78". Lebanon County, ...click for details

$1975. 

This Diamond in a Square quilt is created with the use of One Patch blocks. It is an unusual variation from Bowmansville, a small town in Lancaster, Pennsylvania known for its Star pattern quilts made in this manner. The light and dark calico fabrics are very well planned to make this complex pattern. Solid color pinks in the light areas are especially effective in spreading the eye around. Measurements are 76" x 78". Cable quilting in outer red border. There is a very, very faint are ...click for details

SOLD 

This early wool quilt truly looks like a fabric collage. It is made of a variety of probably homespun coarse wools of solid colors, plaids and stripes. The salmon fabric really pops out against the muted browns. It is quilted with concentric arcs. Two old repairs in the shape of an oval and a rectangle fit perfectly with the irregular pattern. There is a small spot near the repairs but no other condition apologies. The binding is the salmon backing turned to the front. Measurements are 67" ...click for details

What young girl wouldn't have sweet dreams sleeping under this charming quilt? The center is what I believe to be a gingerbread man surrounded by a puppy, chicks, an elephant, a kitten and some indeterminate animals. All have embroidered faces. It is well quilted with a variety of patterns. The center is crosshatched with cables in two borders and flowers in the corners. The outer border is quilted with overlapping circles. There are two very tiny (smaller than a pea) spots next to the centr ...click for details

What may initially appear to be a basic Log Cabin quilt actually has two unusual features. The centers are chocolate brown which is a variation from the far more usual red centers. Second is the border fabric of vining leaves. It has a shading going from white to tones of gray that is most unusual for a nineteenth century quilt but is contemporaneous with the rest of the piece. The quilt is in excellent condition; measurements are 72" x 74". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880's. Th ...click for details
