New York Beauty Quilt: Circa 1920; Kentucky
  New York Beauty Quilt: Circa 1920; Kentucky   $825

New York Beauty is always a dynamic quilt pattern and this is no exception. The bold red dominates while the soft green and orange are good back ups. The green has faded from a darker version but still holds its own. This is a difficult pattern to execute and the maker did a fine job creating needlelike points on the numerous triangles. The quilt is from Kentucky where for some unknown reason, many New York Beauties originated. Measurements are 65" x 84"; made circa 1920; excellent condition.

Stuffed Applique Crossed Leaves Quilt: Circa 1850; Maryland   $4,500  

To the best of my knowledge, this quilt pattern of crossed leaves is an original design. Barbara Brackman illustrated a similar one in her Encyclopedia of Applique (item 23.7) that was seen on an album quilt dated 1846 but I do not know of others. This quilt is made with exquisite workmanship. All of the applique, including the border are stuffed. While it looks like both are solid colors, on close examination one sees a tiny print in the teal fabric. It is finely quilted with tiny diamonds,... Click for details

This Maple Leaf quilt (or is it a Peony?) is beautifully made and has an exceptional botanical border.
