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.

  Mennonite Turkey Tracks Quilt: Circa 1920; Ohio   $1,450

Most unusual Amish/ Mennonite Turkey Tracks quilt from Zoar, Ohio. Both palette and fabrics are out of the ordinary. Done in what appears to be an early acetate(?). Well framed by a Fence Rail pattern border. Pristine condition. Circa 1920; measures 87" x 88".

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

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.
