This charming One Patch Doll Quilt was either the practice piece of a child or the work of a mother whose good intentions exceeded her skill. I believe it was meant to be a One Patch with all equal squares. Overall, it does "read" like a checkerboard pattern but in fact, some of the blue striped blocks are elongated rectangles (one in a different direction than the others) and some of the red blocks are narrowed. It is hand quilted in brown thread. Measures 16 1/2" square. There i ...click for details

$1175. 

This Irish Chain Crib Quilt is a wonderful miniature quilt. The pieces are small and the quilted vine in the outer border is a nicely scaled down version of what one would expect in a full size quilt. The inner zigzag border is an ideal frame. There is slight fraying on the binding but no other condition apologies. The quilt measures 29" x 39".

This Thousand Pyramids Ohio Amish Crib Quilt has a wonderful arrangement of light and dark fabrics. The light blues are well placed to add to the overall diagonal pattern. Several black fabrics are used. Two of the black triangles are thin but intact. There are no other condition issues. The border is quilted with diagonal lines and the interior with squares on point. Made circa 1920. Measures 29" x 32". This is a terrific example of an Amish crib quilt and easy to hang in many spaces.

The maker of this quilt took liberties with the traditional Wandering Foot pattern giving the design lots of movement. Leaves and Four Patches connect the blocks creating an entirely new diagonal pattern. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is crisp and spotlessly clean. It is from New York State; made in the 1880's. Measures 72" x 82".

$595. 

This traditional Chimney Sweep (aka Album Patch) quilt is done in a nice variety of printed fabrics with the red center as the only solid color. Pinks are placed symmetrically around the red center and in all four corners indicative of the careful planning with which this was made. Half blocks are used on all sides to create a nice inner frame. The quilt measures 80" square. Several very light smudges but essentially very clean with strong fabrics. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1870.

SOLD 

This Variable Stars with Applique is one of the gentlest, most subtle quilts I have seen. The Stars are color arranged to form a pattern of concentric squares. Appliqued vines and flowers in the border echo the center medallion design. Hearts in the center are repeated in each of the four corners. The center is signed HAS and dated 1846 in minuscule cross stitch. It is in excellent, unwashed condition; measures 85" x 92". The maker's warm feelings are clearly reflected in this unus ...click for details

$1400. 

This traditional Irish Chain quilt is more "dressy" than one often sees because of the elegant glazed chintz border. It measures a generous 82" x 96" as one would typically find in the mid 19th century when this was made. It is in unwashed condition. There is some light discoloration that would most likely be removed with a wash. The entire back is a glorious fabric shown in the last thumbnail. It would make an equally beautiful whole cloth quilt when used on the reverse.
