$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".

$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".

$1975. 

Bold Sampler Quilt displaying 20 different patterns, both traditional and original. The mauve/gray color in the quilt probably began life as a deeper tone but it is very consistent; unusual and to my eye, a very pleasing color. The quilt measures 70" x 86"; probably Southern origin; circa 1890. The back is navy blue against which the white quilting is highlighted.

Dazzling is the best way to describe this Philadelphia Pavement quilt. It is made entirely of solid color postage stamp pieces. The colors are perfectly placed to highlight the diagonal lights and darks. It is in outstanding, un-used condition. It consists of 9191 squares. Measurements are 74" x 82". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1890.
