One Patch Doll Quilt: Circa 1830   Sold   

This One Patch doll quilt is one of the earliest I have seen. Fabrics date from the 18 teens to about 1830. They include a beautiful variety of mostly brown tone prints.

It is all about the fabrics. Condition is very good. There are two holes smaller than a pea on the inside darker brown border and a water mark on... Click for details

Nine Patch and Octagons Quilt: Circa 1920; Maryland
  Nine Patch and Octagons Quilt: Circa 1920; Maryland   $685.00

This Nine Patch quilt actually forms two additional patterns. Triangles in the corners of the off blocks create Octagons and the joining of the peach triangles on diagonals creates an Hourglass pattern as well. The quilt is a beautiful shade of peach, not often seen. It is nicely quilted with diamonds in the white octagons and diagonal lines in the triple border. Measurements are 80" x 90", workable on several size beds. Maryland origin; made circa 1920; excellent condition.

Patriotic Bunting Flag Quilt: Dated 1898   $485  

The unusual Patriotic quilt is made entirely of printed bunting. By its very nature, the fabric is light and gauzy. The quilt is tied on the back. It measures 62 inches square. On the back the printed label is visible indicating that the fabric was patented in 1898. It also says "Made expressly for...." but I cannot decipher the name of the maker company. Condition is good but nor perfect. There are some water marks along two edges but the interior is without problems. The water marks do not... Click for details

Reversible One Patch Doll Quilt: Circa 1890; Pennsylvania   $195  

This reversible doll quilt has a One Patch pattern on both sides. The side with smaller squares has a triangle border on one end to indicate that it was meant for the head. There is some staining in one of the border triangles but no other condition mentionables. Each piece is outlined with pale yellow embroidery. The reverse side is made up of larger squares (approximately 2 1/2" to a side). The embroidery from the reverse is visible in a pattern of squares within the pieced blocks. Because of...

Charming Pinwheels Crib Quilt done on a wonderful small scale. Each Pinwheel block measures 2 3/4 inches in diameter. The red Pinwheel blades really pop against the blue calico ground. The border is nicely quilted with a pattern of diamonds. The quilt has been washed in its lifetime and remains in very good condition.

Hourglass Crib Quilt: Circa 1890   $395  

This Hourglass crib quilt can be seen as several different patterns. There is the diagonal design in which the indigo triangles make up the bow tie. Alternatively, the primary pattern can be seen as the indigo Four Patch with the light triangles making up the Hourglasses. The binding is the back turned over to the front. While every indication is that it has been this way for many years, it is odd that on one edge, pieces of each block seem to be cut off. This is visible in thumbnail... Click for details

  Birds in the Air Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $950

Dramatic version of a Birds in the Air crib quilt done in a dark green calico. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. Continued use of the triangles to create the sawtooth border was an excellent choice. The white triangles are quilted with squares and the border with double diagonal lines. Measurements are 31" x 36". Pennsylvania origin; Circa 1880.

Lone Star Doll Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $485  

This Lone Star (aka Texas Star or Star of Bethlehem) doll quilt is a terrific miniature. Rarely does one see a small one in this pattern. The quilt measures 23 1/2 inches square. Because it is square, it would look especially good if hung on point. It is well quilted with floral medallions in the corners around the Star; cable in the pink border and diagonal lines in the outer border. The front is in spotless condition. There are scattered small orange spots on the back that do not show... Click for details

Octagons Quilt: Circa 1850; Virginia
  Octagons Quilt: Circa 1850; Virginia   $1,650

The primary pattern is clearly one of Octagons but the joining of the blocks creates secondary patterns of Hourglasses and Stars. This early quilt is made of two indigo prints. Quilting is done in diagonal lines. Two opposing ends have sawtooth borders. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in very good condition. With careful examination, one can see weaknesses in some of the brown flower centers in the blue used for the body of the quilt. Measurements are 88" x 94". It is odd... Click for details
