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".

$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 richly colored Courthouse Steps Log Cabin quilt pattern is beautifully colored with perfectly compatible tones of browns, reds and deep pinks.

This unusual Starbursts quilt is especially complex because of the pieced diamonds background. Five starbursts and four other geometric elements seem to float upon it. It is made of a wide variety of late 19th century fabrics that are well blended.
