The egg yolk yellow/ orange of the Barnraising perfectly continues the Black Eyed Susan theme. Measurements are 67" x 80". Probably Southern origin; circa 1900.

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 consistent use of the same white with printed brown triangles forming the points of the stars also makes an Hourglass pattern surrounding a center diamond in a square. 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".
