This exquisitely miniature doll quilt is one of the smallest I have seen. It is an original pattern that is machine quilted and hand appliqued.

Finding an appliqued version is quite unusual.The fringe was a mother's (probably) successful effort to finish off this delicate piece. It is professionally mounted on a stretcher measuring 8 1/4" wide and 7 1/2" tall. Made circa 1870; excellent condition.

Nine Patch Crib Quilt/Wild Goose Chase: Ca.1920;Pa.   $650  

This Nine Patch Crib Quilt must have been made by someone with a droll sense of humor. The centers utilize printed fabric with geese and the entire piece is framed by a Wild Goose Chase border.

Measures 36" x 37". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.
