$1875. 

For unknown reasons, the New York Beauty quilt pattern was most often made in the South. This example is no exception as it was made in Kentucky. It is a difficult pattern to execute and this is especially well pieced and quilted. It has been professionally laundered and is in very good condition. It has been laundered throughout its lifetime so the colors are a bit softer than they originated but consistently so. An old stamp on the back has the name PS Walker. Measurements are 70" x 82&q ...click for details

$3875. 

The combination of Caesar's Crown with Mariner's Compass patterns and their placement are brilliant. The central and corner block compasses draw the eye throughout the piece. The floral chintz border and pink sashing soften the geometry of the pieced patterns. Professionally laundered and in excellent condition. There is very slight toning to the back that does not show on the front. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1850. Measurements are 96" square.

$12,500. 

This Lancaster County Amish Nine Patch Diamond in a Square quilt has it all. The four very dark green squares in the center diamond and the Nine Patches around them create an additional subtle diamond within the central one. Rarely, rarely does one see a Diamond variation surrounded by Nine Patches. The quilt is made of wool with stars quilted in the solid color blocks. The outer border has the classic Lancaster Amish feather pattern quilting. The photos do not do justice to the rich jewel tone ...click for details

$1875. 

This Mennonite Hearts and Gizzards quilt is made with a rich combination of colors. It is black with what can best be described as a rosy terra cotta. Embroidered stitching in white lightens the entire piece. The wide triangle border is a nice continuation of the geometric pieces between the hearts. The curved and geometric patterns of the quilt alternate as to which is primary. The maker took the time and care to make an additional twist to the corner blocks. In sum, it is a masterful version o ...click for details

This rendition of Birds in the Air is certainly an imaginative one. Each large triangle is filled with cotton crazy patches. It is finely made and in pristine, unwashed condition.
