This applique quilt of clusters of grapes is bold and punchy. The arrangement of the leaves and grapes gives a nice circular movement to each block. It's an unusual plant that grows both red and green grapes. Hearts are appliqued in the four corners. It is very nicely quilted and in excellent condition. Measurements are 80" x 81"; made circa 1860. Said to be from the Olive Baggaley estate near Ligonier, Pennsylvania.

$885. 

This interesting version of a T pattern quilt creates an abstract design as well as the primary T. Some people believe the T pattern signifies temperance but I am not convinced. It is very well quilted and in spotless condition. Three of the borders are red with the fourth in tan likely indicating it should be for the head of the bed. Made circa 1880; Missouri origin. Measurements are 60" x 74".

For those who love densely pieced quilts, as I do, this is a gem. The Nine Patches are as small as I've seen. Each square measures 3/8" to a side! It is very well hand pieced with a variety of printed white fabrics and a deep indigo with polka dots. The quilt is finished with a red binding. Excellent condition; measures 66" square. Made circa 1890; Northern Pennsylvania origin

$1450. 

What I have termed a Feathered Squares quilt is a much more abstract pattern than one usually sees in blue and white quilts of the late 19th century. The nine feathered squares within squares are placed so as to create an additional pattern from the space between them. It is quilted with a chain pattern throughout the white areas. The quilt is in excellent condition. Measurements are 86" x 95"; made 1880's.

This triangles quilt pattern most closely resembles Birds in the Air but technically is a bit different. Both fabrics are tiny prints that blend well together. The backing is a complimentary small print. It is very well pieced and in excellent, unwashed condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880's. Measurements are 78" x 85".

This oak leaf pattern quilt is a fine example of a traditional pattern. It is very well quilted with cable patterns throughout. The oak leaves may appear to be rust or brick color but they are actually red. The deep green background may make the color darker on some monitors. The triangle border is a lighter red. The quilt is in pristine, un-used condition. The backing is a pink and green calico Bars pattern. It is very well crafted. The quilting, piecing and applique are all finely done.

This Thousand Pyramids quilt is made of 100% different fabrics. The fact that no fabric is repeated is what makes it what is referred to as a Charm Quilt. The pattern would be appealing were it not for this use of fabrics but the lack of duplication makes it even more of a success. The quilt is in mint, unwashed condition; circa 1880's. Pennsylvania origin; measurements are

The choice and placement of colors create additional patterns within the traditional Economy Patch. The consistent use of green center squares surrounded by a variety of red, pinks, blues and yellows make for nice diagonal movement as well. The purpleish border is a surprising touch. It is well pieced and quilted. The quilt is in outstanding, unwashed condition. There is a small light spot on the border that appears to be a flaw in the printing rather than a later loss of color. Measurements are ...click for details
