$675. 

The total use of solid colors makes the impact of this Chimney Sweep (aka Album Patch) quilt particularly striking. Light and dark triangles between the blocks add to the effect. Unwashed condition. Has some small dark spots visible in thumbnails that do not detract from the overall drama of the piece. Measures 74" x 84"; North Carolina origin.

Unusual arrangement of Courthouse Steps in which each block is set on the diagonal. Wonderful combination of solids with printed wool fabrics that are set off by the tiny red centers of each block. Measures 68" square; Pennsylvania origin. Slight damage to one corner visible in thumbnail #8. Circa 1890.

$975. 

This Philadelphia Pavement variation is bold and strong in every way. Unwashed condition. A small white spot on one of the blue blocks is part of the paper label from the bolt of fabric, further indication that the quilt has never been laundered. Terrific grouping of fabrics typical of southeastern Pennsylvania quilts of the late 19th century. Equally striking on the reverse Open Center pattern done in a different palette. Measures 80" square; circa 1880.

Beautiful and pristine Streak of Lightning Log Cabin quilt in calico fabrics typical of southeastern Pennsylvania in the 1880s. Pattern is equally striking whether used vertically or horizontally. Double pinks and blues used for the border; the pieced bars back as well as throughout the quilt. Unwashed condition. Several white spots are imperfections in the printing process. Measures 80" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

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.

$2250. 

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
