Pinwheels Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $725   

This Pinwheels crib quilt is set up in such a way that it creates an additional pattern of Streak of Lightning with the sashing. It is made with a very Pennsylvania combination of calico fabrics. The sawtooth border is a nice follow through of the triangle theme of the interior of the quilt. There are several very light spots of some color loss on the peach fabric that are visible with close examination but they are very minor. The back is made of different fabrics than the front that are pieced... Click for details

Bowtie Crib Quilt: Circa 1930; Pennsylvania   $495  

Unlike many Bowtie quilt patterns, this charming crib quilt has an unusual positive/negative effect. While the primary Bowties are blue, one can also see the white blocks as echoing them. Several different, very closely related solid blue fabrics were used. The border is nicely quilted with overlapping circles. The quilt is in excellent condition. It measures 33 1/2" x 36 1/2". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1930.

Nine Patch Crib Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania   $595

Folky Sampler Crib Quilt with American Flag: Ca. 1920; Massachusetts
  Folky Sampler Crib Quilt with American Flag: Ca. 1920; Massachusetts   $3,800

It's safe to say that this folky sampler or album crib quilt is a one of a kind. The blocks are appliqued; ruched and embroidered. Many are floral motifs but it also includes an American flag; eagle; stars and moon as well as two not quite determined animals. It's interesting that even though there is a range of detail and skill, it all appears to have been done by the same hand. The front is a wool ground with primarily wool applique and embroidery that seems to be late 19th century. The... Click for details

Nine Patch Crib Quilt: Circa 1850; New York
  Nine Patch Crib Quilt: Circa 1850; New York   $2,875

Nine Patch crib quilt that is one of the most elegant examples of this pattern that I have seen. The lush variety of printed fabrics date from the 1830's - 50's. Setting the blocks on point and creating a diagonal sashing make the entire piece more dramatic than when set straight. A finely scalloped border is a wonderful frame and the blue printed backing fabric is jaw dropping. It is in excellent condition and has been professionally laundered. Measurements are 32" x 37 1/2"; New York State... Click for details

Chintz Broderie Perse Crib Quilt: Circa 1830   $11,000  

Rarely does one find a broderie perse (chintz applique) crib size quilt and certainly not with the graceful and full design of this fine example. It is richly colored with the appearance of considerable depth to the garlands of flowers. The chintz cut outs are the same fabric often used by venerated quiltmaker Achsah Goodwin Wilkins (1775-1854). The quilt is illustrated on page 176 of "America's Quilts and Coverlets" by Safford and Bishop and page 44 of Woodard and Greenstein's "Crib Quilts and... Click for details
