$725. 

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

$2800. 

This pulsating starburst quilt is all the more amazing because it is what is known as a "Charm Quilt," which means no fabric is repeated. Many are similar but when closely examined, it is evident that they are not the same. The maker chose a wonderful group of fabrics including several dogs; birds and cats as well as George Washington. Several show apples but when different parts of the same print are used, makers seem to consider them eligible to be charms. Made in Pennsylvania a the ...click for details

This wonderfully made Philadelphia Pavement quilt is from the Lancaster County, Pennsylvania town of Bowmansville usually known for its unique star pattern quilts. The complexity of the piecing of this quilt is carried through to a small rectangular inner border. It is in excellent, unwashed condition. Measurements are 74" x 80", circa 1890.

$725. 

This Windmill Blades Log Cabin Quilt (aka Pineapple Log Cabin) has all of the swirling movement one expects in this very graphic pattern. The variety of browns is especially rich in tone. The use of half blocks around the edge create their own border. Made of cotton; circa 1880. Measurements are 64" x 78"; Pennsylvania origin. The lower left is not faded but a different choice of fabrics.

$1575. 

This geometric quilt pattern comes closest to Texas Puzzle but with one exception. The white strips on this quilt end in small triangles. This unique variation makes for hourglass patterns with each of the abutting blocks. The printed fabric used for the off blocks was a great choice as it echoes the pieced block pattern. The quilt is signed in large stenciled letters Amos M. Shenk who was probably the person for whom it was made. The border has deeply undulating feather quilting and flowers wit ...click for details
