This Bear's Paw is very well quilted with wreaths in each of the white blocks. The blue blocks are actually Delectable Mountains but they are placed so as to give more of the effect of the Bear's Paw pattern. The fabric throughout is minuscule white stars on an indigo ground. Excellent condition; circa 1880. Measurements are 71" x 78".

This Four Patch quilt is certainly one of a kind. The overall pattern is something of a square within a diamond but it has a completely different appearance as it is filled with Four Patch patterns on point and on square. Nicely quilted with patterns of diamonds. It is in excellent, unwashed condition. York County, Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 78" x 82".

It is interesting that this Irish Chain is actually created totally with Improved Nine Patch blocks. Positioning them as the maker did makes for a lovely diagonal Single Irish Chain. The same red squares were turned on point to create a very effective diamond border. Quilted with patterns of diamonds. Measurements are 36" x 44". Columbia, Missouri origin; circa 1880.

It is fascinating how a quarter turn can make a regular pattern into such an unusual one. Turning the squares on point gives an entirely new life to this Four Patch in Diamond quilt. Rather than setting the Four Patches on point as most makers would have, this quilter set the overall block on the diamond for an unusual effect. Quilted throughout with a pattern of arcs that are a nice counterpoint to the geometric pieced pattern. It is made with a lovely selection of 19th century fabrics. Measure ...click for details

$2800. 

This pulsating starburst quilt is all the more amazing because it is what is known as a "Charm Quilt," which means no fabric is repeated. Many are similar but when closely examined, it is evident that they are not the same. The maker chose a wonderful group of fabrics including several dogs; birds and cats as well as George Washington. Several show apples but when different parts of the same print are used, makers seem to consider them eligible to be charms. Made in Pennsylvania a the ...click for details
