$985. 

This unusual indigo quilt is made entirely of denim jeans. It is reminiscent of a Japanese boro in which indigo garments are repurposed into bedcovers. This piece would make a very sturdy bedcover or wonderful abstract wallhanging. Measurements are 86" x 89; made circa 1980. It is a top with finished edges but no backing; excellent condition.

$4500. 

This Hawaiian applique quilt has all of the features one would hope for in this specialized type of quilt. It has beautiful echo quilting in which the stitching follows the applique creating a rippled effect. It has an ornate border, a feature not seen in many Hawaiian quilts. It is a beautiful shade of medium blue. It has been professionally laundered and is in pristine condition. The applique appears to be a thistle type of flower but which, I am not certain. Measurements are 78" x 80&q ...click for details

$735. 

This North Star quilt pattern also goes by the name of Star of the East. Regardless of which direction you prefer, it is a wonderfully three dimensional pattern. This example has an unusual, playful border of hexagons along the blue band. The solid blue arms of the stars alternate with printed fabrics of the 1930's, some of which appear to be feedsacks. The backing is the same yellow printed fabric as the centers of the stars. The quilt is in excellent condition; nicely quilted with a waffle ...click for details

$535. 

This interesting Drunkard's Path quilt is more dense than most - perhaps an indication of more inebriation than most. It has a whimsical quality with irregularity to the inner applique border. It works well with the scalloped edge and binding to create a very full border treatment. Excellent condition; circa 1930. Pennsylvania origin; measures 66" x 75",

$1450. 

This Hexagons quilt is actually the same block throughout but the change of color gives it a definite center medallion. It is in pristine, unwashed condition. The quilt is made of a tremendous variety of late 1930's printed fabrics, many of which are feedsacks. The backing is a solid red. Measurements are 74" x 84".

Densely pieced Irish Chain quilt in soft, creamy colors. It is made with mostly printed fabrics and a few solids, all from the 1930's. Each square is less than 1" to a side. It is nicely quilted with curvilinear patterns. The border is a nice continuation of the main pattern. Measurements are 70" x 82". Pennsylvania origin; excellent condition.

While this Sawtooth Diamond quilt may "read" pink on some monitors, it is actually a red chambray, that is red with white threads running through it. The unusual border adds a wonderful new dimension to this traditional pattern. It is in mint, unwashed condition and well quilted with a variety of patterns. The border may have been completed at a later date as it is a newer fabric but I see no reason for it to be a replacement as the quilt shows absolutely no signs of wear. Made circa ...click for details

What young girl wouldn't have sweet dreams sleeping under this charming quilt? The center is what I believe to be a gingerbread man surrounded by a puppy, chicks, an elephant, a kitten and some indeterminate animals. All have embroidered faces. It is well quilted with a variety of patterns. The center is crosshatched with cables in two borders and flowers in the corners. The outer border is quilted with overlapping circles. There are two very tiny (smaller than a pea) spots next to the centr ...click for details

$2950. 

This traditional Hawaiian applique quilt is done with colors more typical of Pennsylvania than Hawaii. I don't think I've seen another Hawaiian quilt with this rich teal background. It is stitched with echo quilting, typical of Hawaiian quilts, that follows the pattern of the applique. Hawaiian quilts are always striking with their strong central pattern but the colors of this example make it particularly so. Measurements are 74" square; very good condition.

$14,500. 

This Lancaster County Amish four patch in a nine patch quilt is brilliantly arranged.The maker used the same colors throughout but placed them so as to create the unusual overall X pattern. This might be a one of a kind. The solid color blocks and border are beautifully quilted with floral wreaths. The body of the quilt is in outstanding condition. There is some fraying to parts of the binding. Measurements are 72" x 78. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1930.
