LeMoyne Stars Quilt with Trapunto: Ca. 1830; Pa.
  LeMoyne Stars Quilt with Trapunto: Ca. 1830; Pa.   $7,000

This LeMoyne Stars Quilt is combined with outstanding trapunto quilting. Two different pinwheel type stuffed work patterns alternate with the pieced stars. Inside the chintz border is a continuous trapunto feather. The soft color palette is unusual for an early 19th century quilt and combines beautifully with the elegance of the needlework. Measures 85" square; Pennsylvania origin. Excellent condition.

Triangles Quilt with Printed Panel: Ca. 1870; Mass.   $1,085  

Thousand Pyramids Quilt with a most unusual center of a printed panel depicting an elegant equestrienne with her hound. It is unusual for a highly pieced quilt to have a central panel. In this case, the elegance of the subject compared with the "country" aspect of the quilt makes for an even more unlikely, though successful, pairing. It is knotted, not quilted. Very good condition. Measures 65" x 87". From the Chadwick Family of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.

One Patch Doll Quilt: Virginia; Circa 1890
  One Patch Doll Quilt: Virginia; Circa 1890   $215

This charming One Patch Doll Quilt was either the practice piece of a child or the work of a mother whose good intentions exceeded her skill. I believe it was meant to be a One Patch with all equal squares. Overall, it does "read" like a checkerboard pattern but in fact, some of the blue striped blocks are elongated rectangles (one in a different direction than the others) and some of the red blocks are narrowed. It is hand quilted in brown thread. Measures 16 1/2" square. There is a hole in one... Click for details
