Double Wedding Ring with a much more abstract quality than one usually sees in this iconic American quilt pattern.

This quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurements are 82" x 84" to outer edges ...click for details

This Floral Bouquet applique quilt is one of the prettiest I've seen. The blue alternate blocks perfectly offset the airy flower arrangements. The graceful border is the ideal continuation of the floral blocks. It is very well quilted with round wreaths in the blue diamonds and elongated versions of the pattern in the blue half blocks. Measurements are 69" x 84": pristine condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920's.

SOLD 

This robust floral applique quilt is a blue ribbon winner from the Indiana State Fair in Indianapolis in 1935. Initially, I was puzzled by the tag on the back stating "Made by R.B. Powers; Ashley, Ohio." I did not understand why an Ohio maker won the Indiana prize. Someone kindly pointed out that Rollins Powers was the name of the company that created the fair ribbons. It should come as no surprise that this quilt won the blue ribbon. It is a wonderful, lush pattern in which the leav ...click for details

This is a particularly fine example of the desirable New York Beauty pattern. The colors really seem to give off the glow of sunshine. It is well quilted with overlapping circles that are a terrific complement to the round pieced pattern. The New York Beauty pattern was named by Mountain Mist in 1930 when they published it with recommendations for this particular color combination and quilting patterns. Variations of the pattern had been known prior to 1930 but not with this name. It is in out ...click for details

This dynamic quilt is made of a unique combination of Lone Star (aka Star of Bethlehem) and Tulip patterns. The way in which the tulips are placed around the star gives the overall pattern a whole different outline. Continued placement of the tulips in the corners really fills out the entire composition. Signed "Edna Adams 1931" in embroidery. Pennsylvania origin; Measures 74" x 76". Background is a very pleasing dusty rose color.
