Lavender Geometric Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania   $825

Sailboats Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania
  Sailboats Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania   $795

This graceful Sailboats quilt appears to be an original pattern with a very Deco sense. The combination of colors gives it a soft feel even though it is made totally of hard edge pieces. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. It is quilted with concentric arcs. Measurements are 70" x 82". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.

Garden Maze Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania   $735.00  

This is a particularly well made version of a traditional Garden Maze Quilt. The center of each maze is quilted with a LeMoyne Star pattern. Corner blocks are created by extending the mazes. The scalloped edge is a nice counterpoint to the hard edges of the Maze pattern. Cable quilting in the border gracefully follows the scallops.The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. Measurements are 80" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920's.

Patriotic Shields Quilt: Circa 1910; Pennsylvania
  Patriotic Shields Quilt: Circa 1910; Pennsylvania   $2,900

Feeling patriotic, anyone? This unusual Shields quilt is combined with diamonds in squares to create an original, all-American design. Half diamonds frame the pattern well. The quilting is not elaborate. It is done in straight lines in the body of the quilt and diamonds in the border. The concentric diamonds are machine appliqued. The quilt is in excellent condition. There is one light smudge that can likely be removed with a wash but I have done nothing to it as I do not find it... Click for details

Nine Patch Medallion Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania   $975  

The basis of this quilt is a Nine Patch pattern but the way it is put together adds additional interest. The alternating of light and dark blocks in addition to the center frame make it a wonderfully abstract composition. It is a beautiful shade of medium blue from the 1920's. The quilt is in pristine, un-used condition. Measurements are 82" x 98"; Pennsylvania origin.

Airplanes Quilt: Circa 1930
  Airplanes Quilt: Circa 1930   $625

The blue background sky of this interesting Airplanes quilt gives an entirely different secondary pattern to the whole quilt. The blue and peach, being of similar size and color values, vie for primary position making a completely abstract pattern. I expect this was unintentional on the part of the maker. Measurements are 62" x 72"; excellent condition. Made circa 1930.

Lone Eagle Airplane Quilt: Circa 1929   $975  

This Airplanes with Eagles quilt pattern was created in 1929 to commemorate Charles Lindberg's 1927 transatlantic flight in The Spirit of St. Louis from Long Island to France. Lindberg flew solo in 33 1/2 hours and became known as The Lone Eagle. The flight made Lindberg an American hero. This quilt alternates pieced airplanes with quilted eagles. It is in excellent condition. Measurements are 68" x 88".

Double Wedding Ring Quilt: Circa 1930; Virginia
  Double Wedding Ring Quilt: Circa 1930; Virginia   $495

Double Wedding Ring was one of the most popular patterns in the 1930's. In almost all instances, it was made primarily with printed fabrics. This solid color example is far more unusual and, to my eye, more sophisticated. It is made with several closely related pinks and blues and the same red and white creating Four Patches in the center. It is nicely quilted and in excellent condition. Measurements are 74" x 96" to the outer edges of the scallops. Virginia origin; circa 1930.

Lone Star Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania   $775  

This classic Lone Star (aka Star of Texas or Star of Bethlehem) quilt is finely pieced and quilted. The solid colors add punch to the dramatic pattern. The scalloped edge, in addition to the elaborate quilting, adds softness to this very bold design. Measurements are 84" x 86" to the outside edges of the scallops; pristine condition. Berks County, Pennsylvania; circa 1920.

It is primarily cotton;the blue inner border is wool. Measurements are 70" x 84"; made 1920's. Definitely Amish; probably from Ohio.
