$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

$2300. 

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. The small irregular pieces look like a collage. The off blocks are a tiny indigo and white gingham check fabric.

This bold Sampler Quilt is one of Lebanon County's best. The solid colors are typical of its Old Order Mennonite origin. There is slight fading but they are still very bold and vibrant. The patterns are a combination of traditional and original blocks. It is well quilted with an unusual zig zag pattern in the sashing and a nice cable throughout the border. It was made circa 1880; measurements are 78" x 81".

$4600. 

This early Center Medallion quilt has similarities to its English counterparts but was virtually certainly made in this country. It is interesting that the binding was done by two methods. Part of it is the European knife edge technique and the remainder with the front turned over to the back as is usually seen in this country. Wild Goose Chase; Zig zag; Diamonds and the central Mariner's Compass are beautifully combined as are the large variety of printed fabrics. They date from the 18 teen ...click for details

Several features elevate this One Patch Quilt pattern far beyond the basic pattern that it is. Subtle variation in the use of printed red fabrics add an effective shading. Abutting the blocks gives a nice positive/negative effect and finally, the strong zig zag border frames it all beautifully. The quilt is in excellent condition and nicely quilted. The white blocks alternate two different leaf patterns. Measurements are 68" x 72"; excellent condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860. ...click for details

$2200. 

This Lone Star quilt (aka Star of Bethlehem or Texas Star) virtually screams of its Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin. The "double blue" print background is most often seen in quilts from Lancaster as is the pieced Bars pattern for the backing. The addition of the bold red appliques is also often a Lancaster feature. The quilt is in mint, un-used condition. Made in the 1880s.
