$1485. 

This Birds in the Air Quilt is done with a lush combination of saturated colors. The red printed ground combined with the purple printed border are fabrics not often seen. They combine beautifully and work well with the prints of the small triangles. The maker included just enough pink to give a flutter to the flying birds. The scale of the quilt with just nine blocks filled with small triangles is unusual and very effective. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurements are 83" ...click for details

Printed fabrics are beautifully combined to create this wonderful Light and Dark Diamonds quilt. There is a wonderful interplay of lights and darks that gives an alternating appearance to which recede and which come forward. The quilt is in immaculate, unwashed condition. Measurements are 82" x 85". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

$2750.00 

This Printed Patchwork (aka cheater's cloth) quilt can easily fool the eye to look as though it was made by piecing. It is in excellent, unwashed condition and maintains its original glaze. The reverse is beautiful blue/green print banded with a brown and rose chintz on two sides. It can just as easily be used on the reverse as on the printed patchwork side. Measurements are 82" square; excellent condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1850.

$2600. 

The chintz border makes this Irish Chain quilt more elegant than most. In addition, the fine quilting depicts different floral patterns in the white blocks. Measurements are 102" x 104"; Pennsylvania origin; circa 1830. The sole condition flaw is a stain primarily on the back of one corner. Only with close examination does it show on the front as the brown blends in with the colors of the printed chintz.

$5400. 

This Floral Album quilt was probably made by one person as the fabrics and blocks are very consistent throughout. The maker created a combination of literal and imaginative leaves and flowers many of which are done with reverse applique. She included several examples of the much discussed Apple Pie Ridge blocks as well as other scherenschnitte type appliques. It is very well quilted and framed with an especially graceful swag and tassel border. There is some light staining that can easily be rem ...click for details

$2950. 

This Thousand Pyramids quilt is made of a wonderful grouping of early 19th century fabrics. It is quilted with double clamshell quilting in the body and an unusual design of concentric arcs in the wide glazed chintz border. It is in excellent, unwashed condition. Some might want it laundered to even out the white background. This can be done but since others would prefer the unwashed feel, I have decided to leave it to the purchaser. A note is sewn to a corner that reads "Barbara Krair' ...click for details

$1800. 

This Sawtooth pattern quilt (aka Indian Meadow) is as crisp and fresh as the day it was made in the 1870's. The fabrics are beautiful with an unusual soft pink print in the off triangles. It is well quilted with clamshell patterns in the printed triangles; diagonal lines in the pink triangles and a basketweave pattern throughout the border. A sawtooth inner border surrounds the blocks on three sides. On the fourth, the block itself provides the triangle edge. Measurements are 75" x 88 ...click for details

This interesting quilt can best be described as an embellished Puss in the Corner. Instead of each corner being a solid block, this imaginative maker used Four Patch blocks on square and on point. This feature along with the occasional use of light fabrics give this otherwise neutral colored quilt a lovely twinkle. The maker's attention to detail continued wit her subtle triangle border. It is in excellent condition; circa 1870's. Pennsylvania origin; measurements are
