$2950. 

This Thousand Pyramids quilt is made of a wonderful grouping of early 19th century fabrics. It is quilted with double clamshell quilting in the body and an unusual design of concentric arcs in the wide glazed chintz border. It is in excellent, unwashed condition. Some might want it laundered to even out the white background. This can be done but since others would prefer the unwashed feel, I have decided to leave it to the purchaser. A note is sewn to a corner that reads "Barbara Krair' ...click for details

This Sawtooth pattern quilt (aka Indian Meadow) is as crisp and fresh as the day it was made in the 1870's. The fabrics are beautiful with an unusual soft pink print in the off triangles. It is well quilted with clamshell patterns in the printed triangles; diagonal lines in the pink triangles and a basketweave pattern throughout the border. A sawtooth inner border surrounds the blocks on three sides. On the fourth, the block itself provides the triangle edge. Measurements are 75" x 88 ...click for details

$1485. 

This interesting quilt can best be described as an embellished Puss in the Corner. Instead of each corner being a solid block, this imaginative maker used Four Patch blocks on square and on point. This feature along with the occasional use of light fabrics give this otherwise neutral colored quilt a lovely twinkle. The maker's attention to detail continued wit her subtle triangle border. It is in excellent condition; circa 1870's. Pennsylvania origin; measurements are

$785. 

This Bear's Paw is very well quilted with wreaths in each of the white blocks. The blue blocks are actually Delectable Mountains but they are placed so as to give more of the effect of the Bear's Paw pattern. The fabric throughout is minuscule white stars on an indigo ground. Excellent condition; circa 1880. Measurements are 71" x 78".

This Four Patch quilt is certainly one of a kind. The overall pattern is something of a square within a diamond but it has a completely different appearance as it is filled with Four Patch patterns on point and on square. Nicely quilted with patterns of diamonds. It is in excellent, unwashed condition. York County, Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 78" x 82".

It is interesting that this Irish Chain is actually created totally with Improved Nine Patch blocks. Positioning them as the maker did makes for a lovely diagonal Single Irish Chain. The same red squares were turned on point to create a very effective diamond border. Quilted with patterns of diamonds. Measurements are 36" x 44". Columbia, Missouri origin; circa 1880.

It is fascinating how a quarter turn can make a regular pattern into such an unusual one. Turning the squares on point gives an entirely new life to this Four Patch in Diamond quilt. Rather than setting the Four Patches on point as most makers would have, this quilter set the overall block on the diamond for an unusual effect. Quilted throughout with a pattern of arcs that are a nice counterpoint to the geometric pieced pattern. It is made with a lovely selection of 19th century fabrics. Measure ...click for details
