$1175. 

Fleur-de-lis applique pattern with exquisite quilting. Corner blocks and border are the same fabric; the rest of the appliques are a second material. Triangle border is a nice contrast to the curvilinear forms of the blocks. Professionally laundered. Several spots of very well done, inconspicuous darning on the brown border. It seems as though the quilt may have gotten caught on something because everywhere else, the fabrics are healthy and strong. Measures 76" x 92"; Pennsylvania orig ...click for details

Extremely finely made Sawtooth Diamond quilt. Soft colors keep this bold design from being overpowering. Nicely quilted with several different patterns. Slightly salmon shade of pink; high quality cottons. Excellent, unwashed condition. Measures 78" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.

The origin of this Diamond in a Square Quilt with embroidery is a mystery. Clearly, the pattern is reminiscent of Lancaster County Amish but it is not that. It is possible that it is English, but not a pattern one would see often. The use of the embroidered flowers and printed paisley (probably from a shawl) are unusual, regardless of where it was made. Slight wear does not distract from the overall impact of the graphics. Small circles are mostly embroidery, not damage. Medium weight wools with ...click for details

Groups of four Pinwheel blocks are set together to create a dense pattern with lots of movement. Browns, greens and teals together make for an especially rich palette. Machine quilted. Several water marks visible on border and one in lowest of middle group of Pinwheels. Fabrics are strong and could probably be washed but I have not touched it. Backing is pieced bars. Measures 78" x 86". Franklin County, Pennsylvania Quilt Documentation project label is shown on thumbnail photo. Circa 1 ...click for details

Large and small Concentric Diamonds are repeated in the grid formed by the outline of each shape. Reds sprinkled throughout make this primarily earth toned rug quite lively. Made of wools; excellent condition. Measures 23" x 39 1/2". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.

$2800. 

This is both the earliest and largest Tumbling Blocks quilt that I have seen. It measures an enormous 102" x 116"; generous for a king size bed or a fabulous wall hanging for a loft space. This pattern is always dramatic but the scale of this makes it unusually so. Well quilted; hand loomed Trenton tape binding. Front is in excellent condition. There is one dark spot about the size of a dime that is visible in first thumbnail close-up. Staining on the back does not come through to the ...click for details

Extraordinarily finely hooked rug in a pattern of stepped rectangles. Colors are beautifully placed to create an overall pattern of concentric diamonds. Superb design and execution. Border color combines black with deep purples. Made of light weight wools. Measures 23 1/2" x 37"; circa 1920.

Cross Roads ( aka Old Italian Block) pattern quilt done with a nice selection of late 19th century calico fabrics. Solid white contrasting with the printed calicoes gives dramatic diagonal movement. Damage to one purple triangle; the rest of the quilt is in excellent condition. Measures 64" x 73".

One of the finest examples of a nineteenth century Log Cabin quilt. Red centers jump out from the printed fabrics. Well crafted and exquisitely designed. Consistent use of solid brown; maroon and paisley strips in the center of each diamond contributes to the unity of this fabulous quilt. The same fabrics form a square around the center black diamond. A variety of solid black fabrics adds to the depth of the entire piece. Border quilted with chevrons. Pristine condition. Light wool fabrics; circ ...click for details

There's method to this madness. What at first appears to be a jumble is actually an orderly arrangement of Nine Patch and Hourglass quilt blocks arranged in rows. While different in size, nearly each block is framed by log cabin strips. Three borders are the same triangles; the fourth is diagonal strips. Excellent, probably unwashed condition. Light smudging on one block. Soft calico prints are beautifully combined to create a twinkly palette of light and dark. Back is pieced bars that inc ...click for details
