Tumbling Blocks Daybed Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania
Bricks Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Maryland
  Bricks Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Maryland   $675

Streamlined, perhaps original pattern that I have termed Bricks, for want of a more proper name. Wonderfully abstract in its simplicity. Nicely quilted including concentric half circles in the border that are a terrific contrast to the geometry of the rest of the quilting as well as the pieced pattern. Measures 40" x 55"; excellent condition. Maryland origin.

Cats Crib Quilt: Circa 1930; Pennsylvania   $450  

What could be more appealing than this Cats crib quilt pattern? Does the fact that there are nine of them relate to the traditional notion of cats having nine lives? Nicely embroidered with details including a collar on each animal. Cable quilting in the border and concentric diamonds throughout interior. Pristine condition. Colors softer that in photos. Measures 35" x 36". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1930.
