Reversible Beacon Blankets/ Log Cabin Quilt
  Reversible Beacon Blankets/ Log Cabin Quilt   $925

It's difficult to imagine two more unlikely patterns used on the same quilt. One side looks like a collage of Beacon blanket fabrics; the other is a traditional Light and Dark Log Cabin done primarily in wools with a few strips of Beacon material and a bit of silk. Both sides are equally striking and in excellent condition. Virginia origin; measures 70" x 80". Circa 1930.

Pots of Tulips Quilt: Circa 1930; Pennsylvania   $435  

This Pots of Tulips quilt is an interesting contrast in that it is sophisticated in design while crude in execution. Sinuous stems are different in each block. Appliqued circles in each pot and atop the lavender flowers are wonderful abstract design. Partially appliqued by machine. Measures 69" x 82";Pennsylvania origin. Circa 1930.
