Baskets Quilt with Stuffed Applique: Circa 1880's; Pennsylvania   $2,200   

This wonderfully fine and folky Baskets quilt has a different applique emerging from each basket. Most are stuffed or padded applique. No two are repeated. They are an imaginative combination of fruits and flowers. It is well quilted with a wreath in each off block and chevrons in the border. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurements are 68" x 76".

Nine Patch inside Garden Maze Quilt: Circa 1869;Virginia
  Nine Patch inside Garden Maze Quilt: Circa 1869;Virginia   $1,185

This is an unusual combination of the Garden Maze pattern filled with Nine Patches on point. The Maze is a beautiful shade of blue/gray. It is stronger in color than most of the Nine Patches so it seems to come forward while they recede a bit giving a nice three dimensional quality to the pattern. The backing is a beautiful, soft stripe and floral pattern to which the quilt can be reversed for a second, entirely different quilt. Excellent, unwashed condition. Measurements are 93" x 96.

Mariner's Compass Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $4,500  

This stunning Mariner's Compass crib quilt is unlike any other I've seen in terms of color palette as well as design. The central Compass is framed with quarter Compasses and a triangle border. Quilting follows the pieced blocks. The quilt is from the Asherman Family of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania ( Franklin County). It is professionally mounted on a stretcher that is wired to be hung either horizontally or vertically. The green is more vibrant than appears on my monitor. If you would like to... Click for details

Boots Quilt: Circa 1930
  Boots Quilt: Circa 1930   $2,850

To the best of my knowledge, this Boots pattern quilt is a one of a kind. Because of the two colors, I am not certain whether they are meant to be boots or high button shoes, but in either case, it is a real rarity. There are 156 boots which gives it all a wonderful abstract quality as well. It is stitched with something of an echo pattern around the boots. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measurements are 60" x 74". The quilt came with a vague... Click for details

Flying Gees Quilt: Circa 1850; Pennsylvania   $2,975  

This is an early version of a Flying Geese quilt made with beautiful combined, richly colored printed fabrics and a glazed chintz border. It is in excellent, unwashed condition so the chintz fully retains its glaze. The border is quilted with concentric arcs and the body with diamonds. There are several spots on the reverse but they do not show on the front. The quilt measures 82" x 86". It is from Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania (Montgomery County); circa 1850.

Wool Crazy/ Tumbling Blocks Quilt: Circa 1890; Pa.
  Wool Crazy/ Tumbling Blocks Quilt: Circa 1890; Pa.   Sold

This Tumbling Blocks/ Crazy quilt is a wonderfully complex piece. The maker very effectively divided two sides of each tumbling block into irregular, crazy style pieces. On top of all sides of the blocks, she added embroidery in a variety of colors and stitches. The entire pattern is very cohesive while being quite busy. The quilt is made of wool with a polished cotton solid color brown backing. It is in excellent condition. Made in Pennsylvania; circa 1890.

Pair of New York Beauty Quilts: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania   $2450.00  

New York Beauty is a difficult pattern to execute which may be why I have never before seen them done as a pair. This pair is especially well pieced and quilted. The off blocks are quilted with finely stitched bouquets of flowers. At the intersections, the maker made the unusual choice of miniature Dresden Plates. The colors are very soft and pleasing. Included with the quilts is a matching pair of square throw pillows. One quilt measures 63" x 96" and the other is 63" x 100". They are from... Click for details

Alphabeth Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania
  Alphabeth Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania   $2,985

Alphabet quilts are a rare breed. When attempted, the maker often has difficulty getting the 26 letters to be placed symmetrically but the creator of this quilt found a good solution. She created star like blocks for the top and bottom corners making it all come out even. There is a quirky element, though, in that only the letter J has a period after it. What could that represent? This quilt is in pristine condition. It has been professionally laundered. It is from Pennsylvania; circa 1920's.... Click for details

Feathered Stars Quilt: Circa 1870; Maryland   $3,400  

This Feathered Stars quilt is exquisitely made in every way. It is tightly pieced with small triangles to the stars as well as the triple border. Placement of the stars creates wonderful positive/negative images with the off blocks. Floral medallions are quilted in the square off blocks. The diamond shaped blocks are quilted with a variety of floral; fylfot and heart patterns. The quilt is in pristine condition. It has been professionally laundered since these photos were taken and the... Click for details

Early Hexagons Quilt with Center Star: Circa 1820's
  Early Hexagons Quilt with Center Star: Circa 1820's   $7,600

Early Mosaic Hexagons quilt with a central star. The star is made of 10 irregular pie shaped pieces. The entire rest of the quilt is made of hexagons. The background looks as though it is solid fabric but in fact, it is made of hexagons of the same material that abut one another. The quilt is made of a glorious combination of fabrics from the first quarter of the 19th century. Quite a few are glazed. The quilt is in excellent condition. It is a top tacked to a linen (?) backing. Measurements... Click for details
