This Puss in the Corner quilt (aka Improved Nine Patch) is made with a beautiful selection of early 19th century printed fabrics. The four corners use the same materials.

This beautiful early quilt is totally reversible. While the way the binding is sewn leads me to believe the maker intended the Bars to be the primary side, to my eye, the Wholecloth Chintz is preferable. It is sewn of three panels, each 24 1/2 inches wide with an extra 3 3/4 inches along one side. The shading of the various blue flowers is stunning. The Bars side is made of two fabrics. One is a tiny geometric print and the other is floral. Quilting is done with diamonds throughout...

At first glance, this may look like a Log Cabin quilt but in fact, it is concentric squares with Four Patch centers. The quilt is made entirely of wool challis with the same red and green prints used throughout. The centers are a greater selection of prints, many of which have light tones that give a bit of a twinkle to an otherwise fairly dark quilt. It is in excellent condition. Measurements are 82" x 92', quite large for the time period. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

Nothing could be more of the moment than this patriotic flag quilt depicting Old Glory. It was most likely made either for the admission of Arizona into statehood on February 14, 1912 or during World War I which took place from 1914 - 1918. In either case, its timelessness remains. The quilt is beautifully executed with the stripes truly having the appearance of blowing in the wind. The flagpole is done with considerable detailing and the tassel wrapped around it is exceptional...

This Nine Patch quilt actually forms two additional patterns. Triangles in the corners of the off blocks create Octagons and the joining of the peach triangles on diagonals creates an Hourglass pattern as well. The quilt is a beautiful shade of peach, not often seen. It is softer in color than appears on my monitor. It is nicely quilted with diamonds in the white octagons and diagonal lines in the triple border...

Charming Pinwheels Crib Quilt done on a wonderful small scale. Each Pinwheel block measures 2 3/4 inches in diameter. The red Pinwheel blades really pop against the blue calico ground. The border is nicely quilted with a pattern of diamonds. The quilt has been washed in its lifetime and remains in very good condition. There is one small snag in the blue that is about the size of a pea but no other condition mentionables...

This Lone Star (aka Texas Star or Star of Bethlehem) doll quilt is a terrific miniature. Rarely does one see a small one in this pattern. The quilt measures 23 1/2 inches square. Because it is square, it would look especially good if hung on point. It is well quilted with floral medallions in the corners around the Star; cable in the pink border and diagonal lines in the outer border. The front is in spotless condition...
