Yes, I've named this quilt Tulips and Wreaths but that is not totally descriptive. The intertwined shapes within the wreaths and extending beyond are nothing I've seen before. To my knowledge, the quilt is a unique combination of traditional flowers with imaginative shapes. The large tulips are very effective in forming a frame with the smaller ones filling in the off blocks. It is beautifully quilted. It has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measurements are 9 ...click for details

This bold barn raising log cabin quilt beautifully combines patterned wool fabrics to create added interest to the eye. The use of light fabrics in the center diamond draws your eye immediately to this focal point while the many additional prints lead you throughout the entire pattern. The four triangles of color within the red frame are particularly well placed. Upon close examination, one sees that the border is actually a herringbone pattern combining solid blacks with printed fabrics. Measur ...click for details

The diamond pieces making up the star are smaller than usual adding more waves of color. The orange zig-zag border beautifully repeats colors within the star.

$1875. 

The Oakleaf blocks are so densely packed in this appliqué quilt that they form a secondary pattern of groups of four green leaves. The border, in addition to continuing the leaves, has hearts throughout. The Oakleaf is a traditional pattern but placement of the blocks in this example gives it an abstract quality as well. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860. Measurements are 74" x 86".

$1285. 

This richly colored LeMoyne Stars quilt is made with fine wool challis on the front and back. The blue print of the off blocks is arranged so as to give the effect of diagonal lines throughout the quilt. Sewn to the quilt is a note that reads "Made in the year 1877 by my mother Clara Kerr Thorne Mrs. MIlls Bratton My Mother". This is a little confusing but I believe Mrs. Bratton is the daughter of the maker. Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 65" x 78". There is a s ...click for details

This exceptional Bullseye Quilt is one of a handful known. All were made in the tiny town of Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania in Berks County. In the 2010 census, Lenhartsville had a population of 165. At this point, it is unknown who made these quilts. Each has a slight variation in colors and patterns around the central bullseye. All have an inner diamond border. Was it one family who "owned" this pattern or was it passed around the village? It is a fascinating question waiting to be ans ...click for details
