$2100. 

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

$1150. 

Well made Four Patch quilt with a good variety of late 19th century fabrics. The light tones are well placed so it gives the effect of a chain in addition to the primary Four Patch. It measures 86" x 88" which is rather large for the 1880's when it was made. Pristine condition; Pennsylvania origin. The backing fabric is shown in the last thumbnail photo. It may appear black on some monitors but is actually an indigo ground.

$475. 

This Delectable Mountains crib quilt is done in an unusual and clever way. Using the same blocks in alternating red and white and abutting them as she did, creates an entirely new image. It is well quilted with small squares in the white blocks and diagonal lines in the border. The red has softened from multiple washings in its 150 year lifetime but it remains a strong pattern. Measurements are 36 1/2" x 43".


Ocean Waves Quilt: Circa 1880; Ohio

$735. 

This traditional Ocean Waves quilt is enhanced with a lovely sawtooth border. It is nicely quilted with circles in the white blocks filled with star-like flowers. Chevron quilting patterns are done throughout the border. It is made of three different indigo prints, all with very small circles. The location of the inner and border triangles in several places combine to form what looks like a larger indigo block. This is likely by accident, but a happy one. Condition is excellent. It measures 70& ...click for details

$625. 

This pieced crib quilt comes closest to the patterns known as Shadowbox or Economy Patch. The addition of the squares and rectangles around the center block make it more complex. The double triangle border adds a new shape to the mix. The use of red triangles on the outside nicely picks up the reds within and makes for a good frame. Measurements are 38" x 39". Excellent condition; Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880's.

$535. 

Pristine condition Nine Patch crib quilt with an especially nice fabric border showing a man pushing a woman seated on a sled. The traditional Nine Patch blocks have occasional quirks in which a block is made of several pieces. Fabrics on the front are clearly from the late 19th century. The backing, a shiny solid red material, is more of a mystery. It is probably early 20th century. Measurements are 37" x 43 1/2"; Pennsylvania origin.

Well designed Courthouse Steps Log Cabin quilt in which the placement of the blue/green blocks creates a wonderful central focus. The front is wool with a variety of cotton stripes for the backing. Measurements are 72" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1890. Excellent condition.

$775. 

This Four Patch within a Nine Patch quilt makes an additional pattern of Straight Furrows with the solid white blocks consistently placed to form diagonal lines. The deep green calico background and many brownish colored printed fabrics form a nice contrast to the solid white blocks. The small scale pieces measure about 3/4" to a side. Excellent condition; circa 1880. Measurements are 74" x 86": Lincoln, Massachusetts origin.

$1285. 

What initially appears to be a straight forward Evening Stars crib quilt actually forms an additional pattern. The consistent use of the same white with printed brown triangles forming the points of the stars also makes an Hourglass pattern surrounding a center diamond in a square. The rich brown fabrics blend well with the blue/green corner blocks. Quilted with circles in the small triangles and four lobed leaves in the off blocks. Measurements are 44 1/2" x 45 1/2".
