Reversible Quilt- One Patch and Wild Geese; Circa 1880   $635   

This unusual quilt is intended to be completely reversible. One side is a One Patch and the reverse is Wild Geese(aka Birds in the Air). While the quilt was made in the late 19th century, the Wild Geese incorporates some fabrics from the mid century. It is especially interesting to find elegant glazed chintz in three of the blocks of this otherwise country quilt.

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

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

Rooster Quilt: Circa 1898; Pennsylvania origin
  Rooster Quilt: Circa 1898; Pennsylvania origin   Inquire for Price

This unique Rooster quilt is truly something to crow about. It is made entirely of 1 inch squares. The background is cotton; the rooster's body is primarily velvet with some wool.
