$625. 

This Victorian doll quilt has so many different elements that it is difficult to characterize it. On the one hand, it has many features of a Crazy Quilt. The two fans in the corners, for instance, are often seen on Crazies. The multiple diamonds in squares in the center, though, give it a very different feel, as do the American flag; variable star and pinwheel. In all, it's a wonderful combination. It measures 18 1/2" x 19" including the lace border. The front is silk with a beauti ...click for details

$6500. 

This wonderful floral album quilt is a combination of traditional and original appliqued blocks. Many of the original ones are done with reverse applique and look very much like the scherenschnitte paper cutouts popular with Pennsylvania Germans. Each of the four corners has a variation of a wreath pattern giving cohesion to the composition. The swag and tassel border beautifully frames the light and graceful applique blocks. Unlike many album quilts, the components of this are equal in weight a ...click for details

$550. 

This traditional Sawtooth pattern quilt is elevated to a different level by the use of three borders. Technically, the innermost is actually part of the Sawtooth blocks but visually it serves as part of the frame. The interior of the quilt is a brick or adobe color with the two outermost borders in red. It is in unwashed condition. It has a few light smudges that I do not feel warrant a wash but it certainly can be done if one chooses. Measurements are 65" x 78". Pennsylvania origin; c ...click for details

Yes, I've named this quilt Tulips and Wreaths but that is not totally descriptive. The intertwined shapes within the wreaths and extending beyond are nothing I've seen before. To my knowledge, the quilt is a unique combination of traditional flowers with imaginative shapes. The large tulips are very effective in forming a frame with the smaller ones filling in the off blocks. It is beautifully quilted. It has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measurements are 9 ...click for details

$2450. 

This bold barn raising log cabin quilt beautifully combines patterned wool fabrics to create added interest to the eye. The use of light fabrics in the center diamond draws your eye immediately to this focal point while the many additional prints lead you throughout the entire pattern. The four triangles of color within the red frame are particularly well placed. Upon close examination, one sees that the border is actually a herringbone pattern combining solid blacks with printed fabrics. Measur ...click for details

$2700. 

This Mennonite Lone Star quilt could not be richer in color. The deep green background perfectly sets off the white quilting which is elaborately done with wreaths. The diamond pieces making up the star are smaller than usual adding more waves of color. The orange zig-zag border beautifully repeats colors within the star. Lebanon County, Pennsylvania origin. 92" square. Unwashed condition with two small smudges and two area of light fading visible in thumbnail photos.

$1875. 

The Oakleaf blocks are so densely packed in this appliqué quilt that they form a secondary pattern of groups of four green leaves. The border, in addition to continuing the leaves, has hearts throughout. The Oakleaf is a traditional pattern but placement of the blocks in this example gives it an abstract quality as well. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860. Measurements are 74" x 86".
