Pinwheels Crib Quilt: Circa 1910;Pennsylvania
  Pinwheels Crib Quilt: Circa 1910;Pennsylvania   $695

I am taking the liberty of naming this unusual pattern as Feathered Pinwheels. The four blocks in the center are a traditional Pinwheel but the addition of triangles around it create something new. Placement of the triangles creates an overall diamond pattern in addition. The quilt is made of a small white on blue print. It is very nicely quilted with feathers throughout. It has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measurements are 32" x 34". Pennsylvania origin; circa... Click for details

This Nine Patch crib quilt is as crisp as the day it was made some 135 years ago. It is in pristine, unwashed condition. The fabrics are a nice combination of calico prints with an especially unusual material for the border. The two lighter blocks may have been made to indicate that side for the head. One of the squares in the lower right corner is especially dear as it is made of two different fabrics - not quite enough to go around. The backing is a Bars pattern with the same brown print as...
