Straight Furrows Log Cabin pattern with two unusual features: the center of each log is divided on the diagonal adding intensity to the furrows; and the color scheme is out of the ordinary. The blacks and grays are not often seen in such predominance with the other colors chosen for this quilt. Unwashed condition; flawless with the exception of two small, old and well done patches on the border that are visible in the last thumbnail photo. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1910. Measures 74" squar ...click for details

I believe this to be a unique combination of the patterns Birds in the Air and Straight Furrows. Wonderful arrangement of lights and darks makes this country quilt very dramatic. Pristine, unwashed condition. Lebanon County, Pennsylvania origin. Measures 76" x 80". Totally reversible to Bars back on which the quilting, particularly the cable pattern throughout the border, shows even better than on the front. Circa 1890.

Rich colors, a strong pattern and beautiful printed fabrics make this Russian Sunflower Quilt one of the best of its kind. Quilting echoes the circular blocks of the sunflowers. Excellent, unwashed condition. Has an old inconspicuous mend less than the size of a dime in one outer border. Measures 74" x 94"; Circa 1870. Probably North Carolina origin.

An exuberant quilt that is unusual in several ways. The egg yolk colored centers of each sunflower date to about 1890. The three different printed fabrics used for the diamonds all date between 1830 and 1850. Wonderful border treatment really does give the effect of rising suns. Very well quilted; unwashed condition. Fabrics used for the white background have aged to different shades of ivory. If washed, they would likely all be closer to the same shade of white but I prefer to let a quilt remai ...click for details

It seems as though this quilt pattern would have a romantic or imaginative name other than the obvious X but I have been unable to locate one. In any case, it is remarkable how such a simple pattern can form several combinations and with the appearance of so much depth. Rich colored calico prints are terrifically offset by the solid white. Pristine, professionally laundered condition. Circa 1870; Pennsylvania origin. Measures 78" x 88".

This early Twentyfive Patch pattern is done with a masterful use of fabrics and color. The dark brown corners of each meet to form an additional Four Patch, all done with some of the most lush, unusual fabrics that I have seen. Very good quilting. Has been professionally laundered with several tiny spots remaining. Measures 75" x 78". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1850.
