Delectable Mountains Crib Quilt: Circa 1860
  Delectable Mountains Crib Quilt: Circa 1860   $475

This Delectable Mountains crib quilt is done in an unusual and clever way. Using the same blocks in alternating red and white and abutting them as she did, creates an entirely new image. It is well quilted with small squares in the white blocks and diagonal lines in the border. The red has softened from multiple washings in its 150 year lifetime but it remains a strong pattern. Measurements are 36 1/2" x 43".

Evening Stars Crib Quilt" Circa 1860; Pa.   $1,275

The rich brown fabrics blend well with the blue/green corner blocks. Quilted with circles in the small triangles and four lobed leaves in the off blocks. Measurements are 44 1/2" x 45 1/2".
