Lancaster County Amish Embroidered Quilt: Ca. 1920
  Lancaster County Amish Embroidered Quilt: Ca. 1920   $1,450

Nicely quilted with an unusual undulating pattern in the border. Measures 85" square; circa 1870. Has been professionally washed. Pennsylvania origin.

Tree Everlasting with Applique Quilt;Ca. 1870
  Tree Everlasting with Applique Quilt;Ca. 1870   $2,200

To the best of my knowledge, this is a unique pattern. The bars are an unusual variation of Tree Everlasting and combined with the Crossed Tulips, I believe it to be one of a kind. The use of solid colors further sets off the wonderful center. Excellent condition; has been professionally washed. Measures 87" x 97"; circa 1870. Pennsylvania origin.

Wool Crossroads Quilt: Circa 1870   $795  

Rich colored fine wools were used to make this exceptional version of the Crossroads pattern. Highly unusual cotton printed fabric on the back would make this an equally interesting whole cloth quilt to be used on the reverse.Excellent condition on both sides. Measures 81" square.

Reversible Barnraising/ One Patch Quilt; Circa 1880   $695  

This bold Barnraising Log Cabin is made of wool challis from the 1870's. It reverses to a cotton calico One Patch. Dazzling use of stripes in the center. Some damage to the wools, much of which is visible in a close-up. It does not detract from the overall dramatic impact of the quilt. Measures 68" x 87"; Pennsylvania origin.

Amish Philadelphia Pavement Quilt; Ca. 1930   $1,475  

The complex Philadelphia Pavement pattern is not often seen, particularly done by the Lancaster County Amish. This version is in pristine, unwashed condition. It has a wonderful contrast of lights and darks, made more intense by the shadings of blue blocks. Measures 86" x 88", large enough for a queen size bed. Lancaster County, Pa. origin; circa 1930.
Amish Philadelphia Pavement Quilt; Ca. 1930
Mennonite Chinese Coins Quilt; Ca. 1910; Pa.
  Mennonite Chinese Coins Quilt; Ca. 1910; Pa.   $775

Chinese Coins is a pattern not often seen, even more rarely when done on a diagonal as is this example. The blocks are fairly large but create a stunning effect whether used either vertically or horizontally. This would make a spectacular hanging in a stairwell or over a sofa because of the 54" x 76" size. All wool fabrics; Circa 1910. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania Mennonite.
