$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

$725. 

This Windmill Blades Log Cabin Quilt (aka Pineapple Log Cabin) has all of the swirling movement one expects in this very graphic pattern. The variety of browns is especially rich in tone. The use of half blocks around the edge create their own border. Made of cotton; circa 1880. Measurements are 64" x 78"; Pennsylvania origin. The lower left is not faded but a different choice of fabrics.

Who knew an Irish Chain quilt could be so intense? The use of solid red and white; the One Patch outer rows and two solid red frames take this quilt beyond the traditional Irish Chain pattern. It measures 68" x 85". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

$1575. 

This geometric quilt pattern comes closest to Texas Puzzle but with one exception. The white strips on this quilt end in small triangles. This unique variation makes for hourglass patterns with each of the abutting blocks. The printed fabric used for the off blocks was a great choice as it echoes the pieced block pattern. The quilt is signed in large stenciled letters Amos M. Shenk who was probably the person for whom it was made. The border has deeply undulating feather quilting and flowers wit ...click for details

SOLD 

This highly pieced quilt most closely resembles Economy Patch and Mosaic Rose but is actually more complex than either. The maker clearly enjoyed working with small blocks. She continued that passion with the lovely diamond border. In addition, the maker chose a wide variety of light and dark indigo printed fabrics that blend beautifully together. Quilting is done in patterns of small squares. The quilt is in excellent condition. It measures 72" x 74"; made in the 1880's.

Measurements are 77" x 78"; Pennsylvania origin.
