Twentyfive Patch/Chain Quilt: Circa 1850; Pennsylvania   $2,450   

This early Twentyfive Patch pattern is done with a masterful use of fabrics and color. The dark brown corners of each meet to form an additional Four Patch, all done with some of the most lush, unusual fabrics that I have seen. Very good quilting. Has been professionally laundered with several tiny spots remaining. Measures 75" x 78". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1850.

Pinwheel Stars Quilt: Circa 1930; Pennsylvania
  Pinwheel Stars Quilt: Circa 1930; Pennsylvania   $445

This Touching Stars pattern is a bit out of the ordinary because of the Pinwheels within each central block. A variety of striped fabrics add further interest to the several compatible blues and grey. Excellent condition. Measures 72" square. Pennsylvania origin; $445.

Double Nine Patch Quilt: Circa 1920; Maryland   $695  

Many features make this a very well executed version of a Double Nine Patch pattern. The blocks are postage stamp size. Each piece of the Nine Patch measures barely one inch. It is very nicely quilted with a variety of patterns. The colors are well placed with reds consistently making up the center. In addition to the Double Nine Patch pattern, it is laid out so that one gets a diagonal chain effect as well. Has been professionally washed. Measures 78" x 92"; Maryland origin; $695.

Centennial Bandanna Quilt with Log Cabin Pattern   $1,950  

The Centennial bandanna forms a central medallion for this Log Cabin quilt done in the 1870's. It's always useful to have a date such as on the bandanna in order to verify the age of the fabrics forming the Log Cabin.

Wool Bricks Comforter: Pennsylvania; Circa 1890
  Wool Bricks Comforter: Pennsylvania; Circa 1890   $795

This comforter is like op art of the 19th century. The contrast of the red on black circles tied with white thread atop the rectangles make the pattern really move. The darks are wool suiting fabrics. Clearly, this was made for warmth as it is quite heavy, but it was done by someone with an artistic eye. Area of light discoloration visible in thumbnail but it does nothing to detract from the overall impact. Circa 1890; Pennsylvania origin. Measures 69" x 71".
