This handmade 48 star flag quilt has the name of each state and its date of admission to the Union embroidered on each star. It is accurate with the exceptions of Arizona and New Mexico. They were meant to be admitted in 1911, as is written on the quilt. In actuality, bureaucratic delays caused them not to be admitted until January, 1912. One can surmise from this inconsistency that the quilt was made in 1911 in anticipation of Arizona and New Mexico statehood. It is in excellent, unwashed cond ...click for details

This original quilt pattern brings several things to mind. The circles can be seen as ship's wheels with the curved appliqued borders as gentle ocean waves. Another, less romantic, possibility is machine gears. The viewer might see additional possibilities. Regardless of the interpretation, it is an imaginative pattern in a beautiful shade of blue and well quilted. It has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measures 84" x 88".

The colors may not be traditionally patriotic, but the Stars and Stripes theme certainly is. This summer quilt (top and back with no batting) was made in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania at the time of the Centennial. It measures 76" x 78"; excellent condition.

$1875. 

This New York Beauty quilt is one of the best I've seen. Rarely does the maker include a vine and leaves between the quarter blocks. The placement of starbursts in the center of each Beauty make them look as though they are flowers atop the vines - pretty clever. It is well quilted, pieced and appliqued. The quilt is in excellent condition; made circa 1920. Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 66" x 80": excellent condition.

Lone Star (aka Star of Bethlehem) quilt on a richly colored blue background. The diamond shaped pieces making up the star are beautifully color coordinated. It is difficult to see in the photos, but the corner blocks are quilted with eagles. The blue triangles are also well quilted with wreaths and flowers. The backing is a lush red paisley print to which the quilt can be reversed making for an entirely different bedcover. Made circa 1870's; Pennsylvania origin.

This Rising Sun quilt (aka Russian Sunflower) has it all. It is a beautiful pattern with extraordinary quilting and extensive provenance. It was made by Mary Showman Poffenberger (1827-1902) for her husband Elias Poffenberger (1827-1901). The Poffenberger farm is well known because it was on the Antietam National Battlefield. The quilt was made close to the time of the Civil War. It measures90" x 102". It is densely quilted with tiny stitches in multiple patterns. Each Sunflower is s ...click for details

To the best of my knowledge, this quilt pattern combining Black Eyed Susans with Barnraising is an original. The green has probably lightened with washing but the quilt remains vibrant and strong. The egg yolk yellow/ orange of the Barnraising perfectly continues the Black Eyed Susan theme. Measurements are 67" x 80". Probably Southern origin; circa 1900.

LeMoyne Stars quilt with stars on an lovely small scale. They measure about 3 1/2" in diameter. Most are red with solid tobacco brown but scattered among the two outermost rows are some with green calico instead of brown. Who knows why the maker made this variation? It has a well chosen border of squares set on point . It is finely quilted with clamshell patterns. The Stars pattern is strong enough to look great when opened fully yet because of the small scale, it is equally effective folde ...click for details
