Hawaiian Applique Quilt: Circa 1930's   $5,850   

Hawaiian quilt are sought by collectors for their beauty and rarity. They are traditionally made of a single applique pattern that fills the entire top. The method by which it is created is the same as paper cutting or scherenschnitte, popular with Pennsylvania Germans. The motif usually reflects local flowers and/or vegetation. They are stitched with echo or contour quilting that follows the applique pattern. This fine example is done in a stunning shade of blue. It has been professionally... Click for details

Reversible Flag/Streak of Lightning Quilt: Circa 1890's
  Reversible Flag/Streak of Lightning Quilt: Circa 1890's   $1,975

This double sided quilt has two patterns that are completely different. One side has a creative version of an American flag with 44 stars. For the most part, they are placed in even rows but one is squeezed on an edge and another placed by itself on one of the red stripes. It's a mystery as to why it was placed outside the canton. The American flag had 44 stars for five years beginning July 4, 1891. The forty fourth star was included for the admission of Wyoming into the Union on July 4, 1890.... Click for details

Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt: Circa 1930; Ohio
  Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt: Circa 1930; Ohio   $725

This Grandmother's Flower Garden is an especially fine example of one of the most popular quilt patterns of the 1930's. It is made with small pieces that are perfectly color coordinated. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. It measures 76" x 88", large enough for a queen size bed which is unusual for a quilt of this era. It was made by the same person as the Double Wedding ring item #1378425. Ohio origin; circa 1930's.

Baskets of Flowers Quilt: Circa 1900   $1,575  

This Baskets of Flowers quilt could not be more bold and straightforward. It is well pieced; appliqued and quilted. Using the same colors for the details of the Baskets as well as the flowers pulls it all together. At first glance, it appears that the red and green flowers on the left of each basket are done with reverse applique. Closer examination, though, shows that the green was actually stitched on top of the red. The piece is very well quilted with a wreath in each off block and cable... Click for details

Nine Patch Crib Quilt: Circa 1880's; Pennsylvania
  Nine Patch Crib Quilt: Circa 1880's; Pennsylvania   $575

This Nine Patch crib quilt is simultaneously crude and sophisticated. It is a basic pattern made with an unusual color palette. The consistently white centers surrounded by irregular placement of calico gives it a nice, irregular twinkle. Measurements are 31 1/2" x 38 1/2". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880's. Slight fraying to the binding in some places but no other condition issues. The backing is cotton muslin.

They are an imaginative combination of fruits and flowers. It is well quilted with a wreath in each off block and chevrons in the border. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurements are 68" x 76".

Nine Patch inside Garden Maze Quilt: Circa 1869;Virginia
  Nine Patch inside Garden Maze Quilt: Circa 1869;Virginia   $1,185

This is an unusual combination of the Garden Maze pattern filled with Nine Patches on point. The Maze is a beautiful shade of blue/gray. It is stronger in color than most of the Nine Patches so it seems to come forward while they recede a bit giving a nice three dimensional quality to the pattern. The backing is a beautiful, soft stripe and floral pattern to which the quilt can be reversed for a second, entirely different quilt. Excellent, unwashed condition. Measurements are 93" x 96. Circa... Click for details

Mariner's Compass Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $4,500  

This stunning Mariner's Compass crib quilt is unlike any other I've seen in terms of color palette as well as design. The central Compass is framed with quarter Compasses and a triangle border. Quilting follows the pieced blocks. The quilt is from the Asherman Family of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania ( Franklin County). It is professionally mounted on a stretcher that is wired to be hung either horizontally or vertically. The green is more vibrant than appears on my monitor. If you would like to... Click for details

Boots Quilt: Circa 1930
  Boots Quilt: Circa 1930   $2,850

To the best of my knowledge, this Boots pattern quilt is a one of a kind. Because of the two colors, I am not certain whether they are meant to be boots or high button shoes, but in either case, it is a real rarity. There are 156 boots which gives it all a wonderful abstract quality as well. It is stitched with something of an echo pattern around the boots. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measurements are 60" x 74". The quilt came with a vague... Click for details
