Swirling Pinwheels Quilt: Circa 1880   $2,975  

This is one of the most dramatic examples of a Swirling Pinwheel (aka Rising Sun or Wheel of Life) quilt that I have seen. The use of solid red and green punctuated by orange centers gives it real drama. The rows of diamonds around the Pinwheels add to the pulsating quality. LeMoyne Stars are another fine element. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. There are some slight irregularities in the green which is probably a home dyed fabric and somewhat fugitive. It is quilted with... Click for details

Wandering Foot Quilt: Circa 1870' Pennsylvania   $1,400  

After much searching, I have not found a comparable pattern to this. It is closest to those known as Wandering Foot; Burr and Thistle or The Swallow. Unlike them, this quilt has a square center while the others have centers with a curved or concave square. Regardless of the name, this quilt is well made. It is quilted with diamond patterns. Placing the blocks so that the tails abut one another creates an unexpected secondary pattern. The border is a luscious print that combines well with the... Click for details

Nine Patch Signature Quilt: Dated 1933; Indiana
  Nine Patch Signature Quilt: Dated 1933; Indiana   $1,075

This unusual Nine Patch Signature Quilt is signed with 1000 embroidered names. Written in ink on the back it says "Made by Miss Jennie Neff's S.S.Class 1933 Howard Earl Smith from Grandma Cowher". I presume SS refers to a Sunday school class and that Howard Earl Smith was the the pastor. I am also assuming that the 1000 names are those of the parishoners as it is far too many for a single class. Why Grandma Cowher was the donor is something of a mystery. Perhaps she actually made the quilt... Click for details
