Striking Barnraising Log Cabin quilt done with a wonderful variety of wool challis fabrics. Both the plaid border and purple centers add tremendous visual punch. Fabrics are strong; two areas of slight discoloration on the border. Measures 82" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1870.

$395. 

Very bold Mennonite quilt in which the black X's truly appear to be superimposed upon the red and green hourglasses. Interior is light wool; border is cotton. Several tiny holes in the wool do not detract from the impact. Measures 74" square; Pennsylvania origin. Circa 1920.

$225. 

Were it not for the trapezoidal shape of this Grandmother's Flower Garden, one would mistake it for a doll quilt rather than the chair pad it is. Hexagons are appliqued to the backing. Wool; two small breaks in the fabric show the paper foundations of the hexagons. Beautiful colors are well planned and create a "fence" around the flower gardens. Pennsylvania Mennonite; circa 1900. Measures 16" x 17 3/4" at its largest.

$2700 for the pair. If sold separately, $1225 for the rug on left; $1695 for the rug on the right. 

These two visually exciting, unusual Herringbone Pattern Hooked Rugs were certainly made as a pair. I am willing to separate them only because one shows some signs of use while the other does not. Both have a tremendous three dimensional effect. Colors are rich and varied. They are wool; circa 1920. Each measures 35" x 70".

$1195. 

Stars hooked rug that has an equally appealing secondary pattern of Tumbling Blocks. The whole is made even more interesting by the striped off blocks. Mint condition; professionally mounted. Wool; circa 1920. Mauves are rarely used as predominantly as in this rug. Measures 32" x 52"; pattern works equally well vertically or horizontally.


Star Spangled Banner Quilt: Circa 1880; Ohio

$2950. 

This strong Star Spangled Banner quilt is further emboldened by the use of solid color fabrics as well as the large size of the quilt. What is now a warm grey probably began as green. It has oxidized evenly and the color is very pleasing. The star motif is repeated in with LeMoyne stars in quilting. Sawtooth border is an excellent continuation of the triangles making up the stars. Unwashed condition. Measures 91" square; Ohio origin.

$975. 

This unusual geometric quilt can be seen in several ways. Vertically, the large blocks look like giant Hourglass patterns. Horizontally, they look like stylized Baskets. In either case, it is an imaginative pattern, well executed. Unwashed condition with several minor age spots. Measures 70" x 82"; Pennsylvania origin. Circa 1890. A note pinned to the quilt says it was "pieced by Grandmother Haines - signed Grace Woodbury".

$725. 

Bow Tie pattern quilt unusually set in Four Patch blocks. Great combination of vibrant colors gives this a harlequin feel. Unwashed condition. Bow Tie blocks are quilted in straight lines; the solid blocks are quilted with diagonal lines, all contributing to the sense of vibrancy and movement of the quilt. Measures 77" x 81"; circa 1910.

$1985. 

It's difficult to say whether or not the maker of this Fifteen Point Lone Star Quilt set out to make this pattern or whether it got out of control. In either case, it is likely unique. It is interesting that five point stars surround the central image and the overall star essentially has five sides. So maybe this was all intentional? Unwashed, immaculate condition. Wonderful selection of fabrics. Measures 80" square; Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

$2850. 

Elegant Robbing Peter to Pay Paul quilt with glazed chintz border. Unwashed condition; one area of faint discoloration but essentially excellent condition. Several slightly different printed fabrics used for the lighter areas. Backing fabric, shown in last thumbnail photo, is most likely home dyed. Measures 82" x 108". Circa 1850; Pennsylvania origin. Illustrated in "The Quilt: A History and Celebration of an American Art Form" by Elise Schebler Roberts.
