Leaves Quilt with Stuffed Berries: Circa 1890   $1,585   

One might argue as to what type of leaf this quilt is meant to depict. Two possibilities are sweet gum and marijuana. In any case, the quilt forms a wonderful abstract pattern that includes small stuffed appliqued berries. It is is an unusual combination of fine and funky. The quilt is stitched with concentric arcs. The combination of quilting pattern and very slight thickness to the batting lead me to believe it is of Southern origin. It was probably made in the late 19th century. The green...

Four Patch Doll Quilt: Circa 1860   $385  

This Four Patch Doll Quilt was likely a practice piece for a young girl. The diagonal line quilting along the border, for instance, is clearly an effort at fine stitching yet the wobbliness and irregularity of the lines may indicate it was made by a novice. Similarly, the piecing of the printed triangles fabric on the right border was done by someone who had not fine tuned her skills. In spite of (or because of) these technical flaws, the quilt has a real charm to it. It's made with a nice... Click for details

Stuffed Applique Album Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania   $9,700  

Never before have I seen an album quilt in which the flowers and berries are done entirely with stuffed applique. Usually, at most, there is a smattering of three dimensional applique but in this unusual album, it is all done with padding making for a very robust pattern. The quilt is in excellent condition. It is all solid color fabrics. Use of the same berry or grape blocks in all four corners gives just the right amount of symmetry. All of the other blocks are either baskets or... Click for details

Variable Stars Quilt with ZigZag Border: Made 1888; New Hampshire
  Variable Stars Quilt with ZigZag Border: Made 1888; New Hampshire   $1,085

The small scale of these Variable Stars could not be more appealing. They are made of a nice mixture of primarily brown and green prints. The stars are contained with a wonderful zigzag border. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Pinned to the quilt is a label saying "Made by Susan L. Mathews about 1888 Property of Julia Gorham Crane". This may refer to Susan Blodgett Mathews (1838-1907) in Columbia; Coos County, New Hampshire as I was told the quilt was from New Hampshire or Vermont... Click for details
