Nine Patch Quilt: Circa 1910; Pennsylvania   $725

Irish Bear Paw Puzzle Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania   $1,675  

It's difficult to find a name for this dynamic geometric quilt because it forms so many patterns. The basic block is much like a Basket pattern. The adjoining red blocks form a Bow Tie or Hourglass.

Strippy Quilt with Fruits; Circa 1930
  Strippy Quilt with Fruits; Circa 1930   $485

Droll seems like the best word to describe this unusual 1930's strippy quilt depicting various fruits. The same fabric was pieced in two different colorways to create an unusual palette. Strawberries, pears and apples were printed to look like lace as well as in solid colors. Reverses to a totally different printed backing seen in last thumbnail. Can be used equally well on either side. Pristine condition; measures 76 x 82".
