Double Wedding Ring Quilt: Circa 1930; Virginia   $495   

Double Wedding Ring was one of the most popular patterns in the 1930's. In almost all instances, it was made primarily with printed fabrics. This solid color example is far more unusual and, to my eye, more sophisticated. It is made with several closely related pinks and blues and the same red and white creating Four Patches in the center. It is nicely quilted and in excellent condition. Measurements are 74" x 96" to the outer edges of the scallops. Virginia origin; circa 1930.

Straight Furrows Log Cabin Quilt: Circa 1870;Pennsylvania
  Straight Furrows Log Cabin Quilt: Circa 1870;Pennsylvania   $735

Straight Furrows Log Cabin quilt with rich jewel tones. It is primarily made of fine wool challis with an occasional strip of silk. The back is also light weight wool. The centers are done in a way not usually seen. The fact that they are divided into triangles works especially well as it continues the diagonal theme of the Straight Furrows. The lower left corner has a variation in the placement of one block. Some would say this is a demonstration of humility in that only God is perfect. There... Click for details

Double Nine Patch Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $950  

Postage stamp blocks make a wonderful combination in this Double Nine Patch quilt. Each block is less than 3/4" to a side. The smaller blocks are combined to a larger Nine Patch pattern. Small Nines between the larger ones make it a very unified design. The browns and pinks together form a lovely, warm palette. The quilt measures 76" x 86". There is a light smudged area along one border but no other condition apologies. Made circa 1880's; Pennsylvania origin.

It is exquisitely quilted with detailed wreaths and hearts in each white block. It is made with a beautifully coordinated selection of printed fabrics.

Sunburst Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania
  Sunburst Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $7,800

Both the pattern and colors make this Sunburst quilt a really powerful design. I like to think that the center and corners choices of flowers warmed by the sun are a symbolic choice as well as good design. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. The body is quilted with postage stamp size squares and a cable pattern in the border. An identical quilt is in the collection of the American Folk Art Museum and is attributed to a member of Alverda H. Hoffman Herb family; Berk's county... Click for details

Pinwheels Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $725  

This Pinwheels crib quilt is set up in such a way that it creates an additional pattern of Streak of Lightning with the sashing. It is made with a very Pennsylvania combination of calico fabrics. The sawtooth border is a nice follow through of the triangle theme of the interior of the quilt. There are several very light spots of some color loss on the peach fabric that are visible with close examination but they are very minor. The back is made of different fabrics than the front that are pieced... Click for details

The bracelet is made of 970 silver, higher quality than the 925 standard. It is approximately 7 7/8" in length but difficult to measure precisely because of the safety chain.
