Straight Furrows Log Cabin Quilt: Circa 1910; Pa.   $875

The blacks and grays are not often seen in such predominance with the other colors chosen for this quilt. Unwashed condition; flawless with the exception of two small, old and well done patches on the border that are visible in the last thumbnail photo. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1910. Measures 74" square.

Sunflower/ Rising Sun Quilt: Circa 1890; Pennsylvania   $2,250

The three different printed fabrics used for the diamonds all date between 1830 and 1850. Wonderful border treatment really does give the effect of rising suns. Very well quilted; unwashed condition. Fabrics used for the white background have aged to different shades of ivory. If washed, they would likely all be closer to the same shade of white but I prefer to let a quilt... Click for details
