Amish One Patch Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania
  Amish One Patch Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania   $975

Richly colored Amish One Patch quilt from Greene County, Pennsylvania. Seems to have been made by someone without tremendous financial resources but with a great color sense. Some of the blocks are pieced together with several pieces of the same materials. Front is wool; backing is cotton flannel. Measures 74" square; circa 1920.

Mennonite Flower Garden Chair Pad: Ca. 1900; Pa.   $225  

Were it not for the trapezoidal shape of this Grandmother's Flower Garden, one would mistake it for a doll quilt rather than the chair pad it is. Hexagons are appliqued to the backing. Wool; two small breaks in the fabric show the paper foundations of the hexagons. Beautiful colors are well planned and create a "fence" around the flower gardens. Pennsylvania Mennonite; circa 1900. Measures 16" x 17 3/4" at its largest.

Lancaster County Amish Bars Crib Quilt: Circa 1950
  Lancaster County Amish Bars Crib Quilt: Circa 1950   $450

Most unusual to have a genuine Lancaster County Amish Bars Crib quilt, but particularly as late as 1950. Fabrics are a combination of rayon and wool knit. Subtle, clearly intentional difference in the bars. The outer two are wider and a different fabric than the central two. Measures 29" x 34".

Cotton sateen Baskets quilt done in luscious shades of tropical fruits. Pristine, unwashed condition. Very well quilted. Fine fabrics and craftsmanship. Background is soft shade of seafoam green. Measures 76" x 95". York County, Pennsylvania Mennonite. Circa 1920.

Lancaster County Amish Embroidered Quilt: Ca. 1920
  Lancaster County Amish Embroidered Quilt: Ca. 1920   $1,450

Embroidered pinwheels of this type are usually seen decorating pillows; rarely are they an entire quilt pattern. This Lancaster County Amish example is very well planned out with diagonal rows of color. Background is men's wool suiting fabrics. Quilted in green thread with zigzag patterning throughout the border. Measures 75" x 78". Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.

Amish Philadelphia Pavement Quilt; Ca. 1930   $1,475  

The complex Philadelphia Pavement pattern is not often seen, particularly done by the Lancaster County Amish. This version is in pristine, unwashed condition. It has a wonderful contrast of lights and darks, made more intense by the shadings of blue blocks. Measures 86" x 88", large enough for a queen size bed. Lancaster County, Pa. origin; circa 1930.
