Patriotic Flag Quilt: Made 1911

$8700. 

This handmade 48 star flag quilt has the name of each state and its date of admission to the Union embroidered on each star. It is accurate with the exceptions of Arizona and New Mexico. They were meant to be admitted in 1911, as is written on the quilt. In actuality, bureaucratic delays caused them not to be admitted until January, 1912. One can surmise from this inconsistency that the quilt was made in 1911 in anticipation of Arizona and New Mexico statehood. It is in excellent, unwashed cond ...click for details

$1850. 

This original quilt pattern brings several things to mind. The circles can be seen as ship's wheels with the curved appliqued borders as gentle ocean waves. Another, less romantic, possibility is machine gears. The viewer might see additional possibilities. Regardless of the interpretation, it is an imaginative pattern in a beautiful shade of blue and well quilted. It has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measures 84" x 88". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1 ...click for details

The colors may not be traditionally patriotic, but the Stars and Stripes theme certainly is. This summer quilt (top and back with no batting) was made in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania at the time of the Centennial. It measures 76" x 78"; excellent condition.

$1875. 

This New York Beauty quilt is one of the best I've seen. Rarely does the maker include a vine and leaves between the quarter blocks. The placement of starbursts in the center of each Beauty make them look as though they are flowers atop the vines - pretty clever. It is well quilted, pieced and appliqued. The quilt is in excellent condition; made circa 1920. Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 66" x 80": excellent condition.

$1675. 

Lone Star (aka Star of Bethlehem) quilt on a richly colored blue background. The diamond shaped pieces making up the star are beautifully color coordinated. It is difficult to see in the photos, but the corner blocks are quilted with eagles. The blue triangles are also well quilted with wreaths and flowers. The backing is a lush red paisley print to which the quilt can be reversed making for an entirely different bedcover. Made circa 1870's; Pennsylvania origin.

$1185. 

This classic Barnraising Log Cabin Quilt was made with an unusual color palette. The calico prints are typical of late 19th century Pennsylvania but they are put together in an overall lighter tone than one usually sees. It is in excellent, unwashed condition. Sewn to the quilt is a paper label with the name Robert Bauer. The back of the quilt is pink and green bars as is often found in 19th century quilts of southeast Pennsylvania. Measurements are 82" square.

$1775. 

This unusual Starbursts quilt is especially complex because of the pieced diamonds background. Five starbursts and four other geometric elements seem to float upon it. It is made of a wide variety of late 19th century fabrics that are well blended. There is some light soiling on some of the light color fabrics but it does not detract from the dramatic impact of this unusual quilt. Measurements are 82" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

This Rising Sun quilt (aka Russian Sunflower) has it all. It is a beautiful pattern with extraordinary quilting and extensive provenance. It was made by Mary Showman Poffenberger (1827-1902) for her husband Elias Poffenberger (1827-1901). The Poffenberger farm is well known because it was on the Antietam National Battlefield. The quilt was made close to the time of the Civil War. It measures90" x 102". It is densely quilted with tiny stitches in multiple patterns. Each Sunflower is s ...click for details

$2100. 

To the best of my knowledge, this quilt pattern combining Black Eyed Susans with Barnraising is an original. The green has probably lightened with washing but the quilt remains vibrant and strong. The egg yolk yellow/ orange of the Barnraising perfectly continues the Black Eyed Susan theme. Measurements are 67" x 80". Probably Southern origin; circa 1900.
