This rendition of Birds in the Air is certainly an imaginative one. Each large triangle is filled with cotton crazy patches. It is finely made and in pristine, unwashed condition.

$4600. 

This early Center Medallion quilt has similarities to its English counterparts but was virtually certainly made in this country. It is interesting that the binding was done by two methods. Part of it is the European knife edge technique and the remainder with the front turned over to the back as is usually seen in this country. Wild Goose Chase; Zig zag; Diamonds and the central Mariner's Compass are beautifully combined as are the large variety of printed fabrics. They date from the 18 teen ...click for details

Several features elevate this One Patch Quilt pattern far beyond the basic pattern that it is. Subtle variation in the use of printed red fabrics add an effective shading. Abutting the blocks gives a nice positive/negative effect and finally, the strong zig zag border frames it all beautifully. The quilt is in excellent condition and nicely quilted. The white blocks alternate two different leaf patterns. Measurements are 68" x 72"; excellent condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860. ...click for details

$2200. 

This Lone Star quilt (aka Star of Bethlehem or Texas Star) virtually screams of its Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin. The "double blue" print background is most often seen in quilts from Lancaster as is the pieced Bars pattern for the backing. The addition of the bold red appliques is also often a Lancaster feature. The quilt is in mint, un-used condition. Made in the 1880s.

$1675. 

To the best of my knowledge, this quilt in which the Tumbling Blocks pattern is set in Bars, is a unique pattern. The maker of this quilt certainly had a distinctive eye in that her choice of fabrics is also out of the ordinary.The Tumbling Blocks effect works equally well when the quilt is viewed both vertically and horizontally. It is in excellent condition and truly one of a kind. Measurements are 77" x 84". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1890.

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
