New York Beauty Quilt: Ca. 1920:Pennsylvania   $1875.    

This New York Beauty quilt is one of the best I've seen. Rarely does the maker include a vine and leaves between the quarter blocks. The placement of starbursts in the center of each Beauty make them look as though they are flowers atop the vines - pretty clever. It is well quilted, pieced and appliqued. The quilt is in excellent condition; made circa 1920. Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 66" x 80": excellent condition.

  Pastel Shirting Bars Quilt: Ca. 1920; Pa.   $695.

This is a Bars quilt with soft, creamy solid color shirting fabrics. It is nicely framed with a triangle border that repeats the quilting pattern within the Bars.It is in pristine, unwashed condition. Lebanon County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920. Measurements are 70" x 84".

Black Eyed Susan/Barnraising Quilt: Circa 1900   $2100.   

To the best of my knowledge, this quilt pattern combining Black Eyed Susans with Barnraising is an original. The green has probably lightened with washing but the quilt remains vibrant and strong. The egg yolk yellow/ orange of the Barnraising perfectly continues the Black Eyed Susan theme. Measurements are 67" x 80". Probably Southern origin; circa 1900.
