$625. 

This Crazy Starburst quilt is unusual for two features. It has 16 points which is twice the usual number. In addition, it is made of totally irregular, crazy patches rather than the traditional diamonds. It's looks like something one would see in a kaleidoscope. There is some slight fading to the red ground but no other condition apologies. Measurements are 68" x 72". South Carolina origin; circa 1880's.

$1085. 

This Hourglass quilt (aka Bowtie) is graceful and airy. It is very well quilted with wreaths in the white blocks. The same triangles of the Hourglass are turned on their side to create the very effective double sawtooth border. The quilt measures a generous 84" x 96", large enough for a queen or king size bed. At some time, the binding was replaced. There are no other condition apologies. Made in the 1870's.

This Nine Patch crib quilt virtually screams of its Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin. The double blue fabric is a terrific background for the solid red and orange of the Nine Patch blocks and brilliant checkerboard border. The pieced Bars backing is further evidence of its Pennsylvania roots. It has been washed and is in excellent condition. Measurements are 44" x 46 1/2".

$1800. 

This version of Touching Stars is different from the more usual configuration of stars made of diamonds. In this quilt known as The Twinkling Star, triangles are filled with smaller triangles as in the Birds in the Air pattern. It is made with a variety of medium and darker blue indigo prints. It is quilted with many different patterns, the most unusual of which is a knife, fork and spoon. I wish we knew the significance to the maker! Measurements are 88" square.

$1485. 

This interesting quilt actually combines three different patterns. The Garden Maze is filled with 8 Point Stars within which are the obscure pattern known as The Car Wheel. The Car Wheels are a nice variety of late 19th century printed fabrics highlighted by the deep indigo of the maze. It is well quilted throughout with clamshells and X's in the squares next to the stars. Measurements are 74" square; made circa 1870's; excellent condition.

The use of color and fabric could not be better in this Carpenter's Wheel quilt. The green background beautifully sets off the deep indigo and rose tones while the pink diamonds give a bursting effect to each star. And who could ask for a better border treatment than this Delectable Mountains? Nicely quilted including patterns of concentric arcs in the green sashing. The quilt is in excellent condition; made circa 1860's. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; measurements are 70" ...click for details

$1985. 

Wow - does this pop or what? This Star of Bethlehem quilt (aka Texas Star) is from Oley, Pennsylvania. It has all of the bold characteristics often seen in Berks County quilts. It is made entirely of solid color fabrics which adds tremendously to the impact of this dramatic pattern. It is in excellent, unwashed condition. The back is pieced with Bars pattern using the same green fabric and pink fabrics as are on the front of the quilt. Measurements are 82" square. Made circa 1880.

$485. 

This Windmill Blades (aka Pineapple) Log Cabin doll quilt is simultaneously crude and sophisticated. The concept of a central Blade with a piano key border could not be better. Pink strips are regularly placed in the corners and middle so it seems that the maker was intentional in her choices. Execution, though, is a little wonky which actually adds a lot of charm. It is mounted on a stretcher measuring 18 1/4" x 19 1/4". Excellent condition; made circa 1880's in Pennsylvania.
