$825. 

This One Patch Charm Quilt is more than its name. The blocks are set on point and colors are used to create a Nine Patch Center Diamond. The term Charm Quilt refers to one in which no fabric is repeated. Many are very similar but on close examination, it is evident that they are not the same. This quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurement are 70" x 76". Oley valley, Berks County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

This classic Barnraising Log Cabin quilt has a charming twist. The centers are all Nine Patches. They are done in solid reds which make them really pop out against the prints of the rest of the quilt. The prints include conversationals with anchors, horse heads and jockeys on horses. It is in excellent condition. Measurements are 72" x 82" >Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

This extraordinary pictorial quilt depicts images that are both fierce and friendly. On the bottom are hounds chasing stags while on the top is a tree of life surrounded by birds, one of which may be a dove. It's a shame not to be able to speak with the quiltmaker to learn more of her intent but perhaps it is a metaphor for both the danger and kindness of life. Or am I reading too much into it? The quilt is from Pennsylvania; circa 1870's. Measurements are 77" x 78". It is in ...click for details

This is one of the most interesting cotton Crazy Quilts that I have seen. The indigo background certainly contributes to the punchy look of the quilt. The blocks are a nice combination of crazy and traditional patterns. The center block cleverly combines with the four surrounding it to create something of a medallion. A note sewn to the quilt reads "A Present To Harry W. Keller From Grandma Keller 1900 74 years". The quilt is dated 1900 but the fabrics are all from the last quarter of ...click for details

The quilt is made of a fabulous variety of fabrics from the third quarter of the 19th century. The background fabric is a small paisley print and the reverse is a print with hops.

It is safe to say that this stunning version of a Joseph's Coat quilt is an original.The diagonal stripes form a three dimensional looking herringbone pattern that I have never seen. The yellow Bars are all quilted with cable patterns. It is in unwashed condition with some minor spotting that does not detract from the graphic impact of the quilt. Measurements are 72" x 89". Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

This LeMoyne Stars quilt is made of a beautiful variety of fabrics and unusual color choices. The background and swag and bow border are a pale marigold colored print that is beautifully offset with the brown grid. Condition is very good but not perfect; there is some weakness to a few of the diamonds making up the stars. Measurements are 74" x 93"; Pennsylvania origin. Made circa 1830's.

$2875. 

The name of this quilt pattern, Old Italian Block, is a mystery to me but it seems to be well established. This example is done with a glorious combination of stunning fabrics. All are in unwashed, pristine condition. The outer border is a highly glazed chintz. Oddly, the back is a cotton muslin. One would have expected a "dressier" choice given the front but perhaps she the maker indulged all she could with the front of the quilt. It is quilted throughout with blocks of diamonds.

This unusual Herringbone pattern is fabulously three dimensional. It is made of a very nice selection of late 19th century solid and printed fabrics. The backing is a red paisley print to which it is totally reversible for a very different quilt. The paisley is also used for some of the strips on the front of the quilt. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880. Excellent condition; there is a seam separating the quilt from the border that is a little wonky but that appears to have been in the making.
