$1075. 

Deeply saturated colors in a variety of wools make this Mennonite Double X pattern quilt particularly rich and dense. (Red is actually more wine or ruby colored than on the monitor). Subtle variations in the tone on tone designs within the blacks. Excellent condition. Circa 1900; western Pennsylvania origin. Measures 75" x 77'.

$1775. 

Once again, it's stunning to realize that such a contemporary looking pattern and color combination can be more than 125 years old. This Hourglass (aka Bowtie) pattern quilt is made entirely with two beautiful printed fabrics. The tan background material is probably 10 years older (circa 1860) than the pink (circa 1870). Incredibly crisp, unwashed condition. Measures 84" x 88"; Pennsylvania origin.

Early and compex quilt pattern of Hexagons within Hexagons. Forms a secondary pattern of Six Point Stars around the basic hexagonal block. Beautiful fabrics; heart quilted within each small triangle. Chevrons quilted in large light triangles and cables in the red banding. Difficult to see because of the heavily patterned fabrics but well done. Excellent condition. Measures 85" x 94"; Pennsylvania origin. Circa 1860.

$775. 

This Pinwheels pattern quilt is calm and serene, yet not boring. It is a sophisticated shade of dusty rose done in cotton sateen, giving it something of a "dressed up" feel. The matching pillow sham is a true rarity. It would serve for the purpose for which it was intended, but equally well as a matching dresser scarf or wall hanging. Professionally laundered; nicely quilted. Quilt measures 79" square; pillow sham is 31" x 78". Circa 1920.

Diagonal placement of the small size Baskets gives this quilt particular interest. Equally enhancing is the forest green background that is quilted in white. Nice variety of 1880's fabrics. Unwashed condition; well crafted. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin. Measures 79" square.

$1250. 

Anybody know what the initials SES stand for on this Schoolhouse comforter? My guess is Sex Education School. Very interesting mix of crude and sophisticated. The frame with vertically placed blocks is particularly well designed with color and fabrics deliberately planned. Red outlines each of the black corner blocks; the center 3 blocks of each side have fabrics distinguished from all others in the quilt. Excellent condition with the exception of several missing ties. Circa 1910; measures 62&q ...click for details

$2975. 

Dense patterning makes this combination of Star of Bethlehem; Oakleaf; Variable Star and Hourglass a real knock-out. Graduated sizes of each frame add to the drama of the large central star. Colors and fabrics have mellowed with washing. Likely a unique combination of patterns. Measures 82" x 99"; circa 1870. Pennsylvania origin.

Small triangles, with excellent use of light and dark, truly convey the sense of Birds in the Air, as this pattern is so aptly named. Well pieced and quilted with cable pattern in border. Blocks nicely miniaturized to fit the scale of the quilt. Beautiful selection of fabrics; excellent condition. Circa 1880; Pennsylvania origin. Measures 38" square.
