The name of this quilt pattern, Old Italian Block, is a mystery to me but it seems to be well established. This example is done with a glorious combination of stunning fabrics. All are in unwashed, pristine condition. The outer border is a highly glazed chintz. Oddly, the back is a cotton muslin. One would have expected a "dressier" choice given the front but perhaps she the maker indulged all she could with the front of the quilt. It is quilted throughout with blocks of diamonds.

This wonderfully graphic quilt "reads" as both Streak of Lightning and Tumbling Blocks. It is difficult to know whether that was the maker's intention. The use of solid colors heightens the effect of both patterns. It is as well crafted as it is designed. Measurements are 70" x 73"; excellent condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1910.

Wonderfully graphic Windmill Blades Log Cabin quilt (aka Pineapple Log Cabin) in the unexpected colors of lavender and white. The diamond border adds to the impact.

This Mariner's Compass quilt is one of the most exquisitely crafted that I have seen. Each Compass is made of 106 triangles, all tapering to a fine point. The ground is beautifully quilted with concentric wreaths. And in case all of that wasn't enough, the maker finished it with a double triangle border! Measurements are 70" x 80"; made circa 1870; excellent condition.

Dramatic barely describes this wonderful Philadelphia Pavement Quilt. Postage stamp size pieces, while set on square, give the impression of a diagonal design because of the use of color. The consistent use of bands of yellow, red and blue create both an overall X and Diamond patterns. It is well quilted with cable patterns in the borders and small diamonds throughout the body. Excellent condition; circa 1880. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 82" x 86".
