Silk Hourglass Doll Quilt: Circa 1870
  Silk Hourglass Doll Quilt: Circa 1870   $395

This Hourglass (aka Bowtie) doll quilt is unusually fancy as it is made entirely of silk. The fabrics were most likely dress materials from the 1860's - 70's. The maker cleverly used the same triangles for the border as the body of the quilt. Placing them at right angles, though, gives them a very different appearance. The quilt is in excellent condition. Measurements are 12 1/2" x 17 3/4".

Illinois Amish Roman Stripe Quilt: Circa 1880's

This Illinois Amish Roman Stripe quilt is dramatic because of the colors; small scale of the blocks and having them set on a diagonal.
