$875. 

Unusual Nine Patch Hooked Rug that is more like a quilt pattern than that of a rug. Made of fairly heavy wools and hooked (or shirred?)in an unusual way that makes the texture look like brain matter. Cleverly composed so that the rust colored squares both outline the Nine Patches and are repeated to form corner blocks. Rich colors; pristine condition. Measures 26 1/2" x 65". Circa 1930.

Fans quilt in colors that look like they've been drawn with crayons. The use of all solid colors makes for a bold image. A little primitive in construction but dynamic nonetheless. Measures 66 x 78"; Maryland origin. Circa 1930.

$725. 

Nine Patch quilt on a chambray ground with wonderful gingham checks. Triangles connecting the Nine Patches create octagons in the off blocks making this more than a simple Nine Patch. A lovely country quilt in classic red, white and blue. (On my monitor, it looks more pinkish, but that is not the case.) Pristine, unwashed condition. Measures 73" x 82". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1910.
