Kansas Troubles Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania

Catalogue: Antiques: Decorative Art: Textiles: Quilts: Pre 1920   item# 587449

Kansas Troubles Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania

$775. 

Pristine and unwashed Kansas Troubles quilt, also known as Sawtooth or Delectable Mountains. The tan is a warm, soft cafe au lait color; it does not have any of the olive tone that may show on your monitor. The use of these two particular solid color fabrics abutting one another makes an unpredictably intense palette. Quilted with pink thread throughout. Measures 88" square; Pennsylvania origin. Circa 1920.

Velvets make this Tumbling Blocks Pattern quilt even more alive than this pattern usually is. Wonderful diamond border makes a wonderful frame. Measures 38" x 80", probably made for a daybed. Great size to hang vertically in a stairwell or horizontally over a sofa or fireplace. Cotton sateen backing; both tied and quilted. Pristine condition; circa 1920. Pennsylvania origin.

$1600. 

This velvet Tumbling Blocks quilt is as lush and sensuous as a sable coat - but more politically correct. Rich, dense colors combined with the depth of the fabric make this an exceptional example of an always desirable pattern. Wonderfully three dimensional. Tied on the back which is cafe au lait colored cotton sateen that also forms the binding. Albany, New York origin. Measures 67" x 78"; circa 1880.

$1685. 

Delicate Floral Wreaths quilt, done on an unusually small scale. The color palette initially gives the impression of this being a quilt from the 1920's. Closer inspection of the fabrics indicates it is actually from the late 19th century. Very well quilted with a variety of patterns. The centers of the wreaths quilted in the off blocks are filled with different floral patterns. Professionally laundered; pristine condition. Measures 73" x 76"; Pennsylvania origin. Circa 1870.

This is an extraordinary, bold and original interpretation of a Honeycomb, or Hexagon pattern quilt. Graceful wreaths and vining borders are brilliantly offset against the dominant central pattern. Illustrated in The Quilt Engagement Calendar when I last owned it: I have recently re-purchased it from a collection. Very well pieced and appliqued. Finely cross hatch quilted. Unwashed condition; several area of light discoloration are visible in thumbnail photos. Could be washed and removed, but I ...click for details

$975. 

This Four Baskets pattern was immortalized some twenty years ago when it was used as a United States postage stamp. The placement of color in this example makes it even more interesting than most. The use of two colors gives both the original block of two red (it "reads" pink but the material is actually a soft brick color with a white print) and two green baskets. One can see equally prominently a block of four red and four green baskets. Finally, there are diagonal crisscrosses of th ...click for details

It is difficult to imagine that a quilt as fresh and crisp in condition as this Nine Patch is more than 125 years old. It was obviously packed away and never saw the light of day. Beautiful fabrics; wonderful zigzag border makes a great frame. Quilting in off blocks done in the same nine patch design as the primary pattern. Border quilted with diagonal lines. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; measures 76" x 90".
