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

  Glazed Chintz Wholecloth Quilt: Circa 1840;Mass.   $2,975
