This traditional Ocean Waves quilt is enhanced with a lovely sawtooth border. It is nicely quilted with circles in the white blocks filled with star-like flowers. Chevron quilting patterns are done throughout the border. It is made of three different indigo prints, all with very small circles. The location of the inner and border triangles in several places combine to form what looks like a larger indigo block. This is likely by accident, but a happy one. Condition is excellent. It measures 70& ...click for details

$625. 

This pieced crib quilt comes closest to the patterns known as Shadowbox or Economy Patch. The addition of the squares and rectangles around the center block make it more complex. The double triangle border adds a new shape to the mix. The use of red triangles on the outside nicely picks up the reds within and makes for a good frame. Measurements are 38" x 39". Excellent condition; Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880's.

$535. 

Pristine condition Nine Patch crib quilt with an especially nice fabric border showing a man pushing a woman seated on a sled. The traditional Nine Patch blocks have occasional quirks in which a block is made of several pieces. Fabrics on the front are clearly from the late 19th century. The backing, a shiny solid red material, is more of a mystery. It is probably early 20th century. Measurements are 37" x 43 1/2"; Pennsylvania origin.

This Four Patch within a Nine Patch quilt makes an additional pattern of Straight Furrows with the solid white blocks consistently placed to form diagonal lines. The deep green calico background and many brownish colored printed fabrics form a nice contrast to the solid white blocks. The small scale pieces measure about 3/4" to a side. Excellent condition; circa 1880. Measurements are 74" x 86": Lincoln, Massachusetts origin.

$1285. 

What initially appears to be a straight forward Evening Stars crib quilt actually forms an additional pattern. The consistent use of the same white with printed brown triangles forming the points of the stars also makes an Hourglass pattern surrounding a center diamond in a square. The rich brown fabrics blend well with the blue/green corner blocks. Quilted with circles in the small triangles and four lobed leaves in the off blocks. Measurements are 44 1/2" x 45 1/2".

This fine Philadelphia Pavement quilt is done with smaller than postage stamp size pieces for a total of 12,996! The maker took as much care with her color choices as with the piecework. It is an unusual and very effective color palette. This quilt is made by the same hand as the Philadelphia Pavement #1247985 made entirely with solid colors. This one combines both solid and printed fabrics. It is in pristine, unwashed condition. Concentric quilted diamonds show up well on the solid blue backing ...click for details
