Mennonite Flower Garden Chair Pad: Ca. 1900; Pa.
  Mennonite Flower Garden Chair Pad: Ca. 1900; Pa.   $225

Were it not for the trapezoidal shape of this Grandmother's Flower Garden, one would mistake it for a doll quilt rather than the chair pad it is. Hexagons are appliqued to the backing. Wool; two small breaks in the fabric show the paper foundations of the hexagons. Beautiful colors are well planned and create a "fence" around the flower gardens. Pennsylvania Mennonite; circa 1900.

Pair of Herringbone Pattern Hooked Rugs   $1,650  

These two visually exciting, unusual Herringbone Pattern Hooked Rugs were certainly made as a pair. I am willing to separate them only because one shows some signs of use while the other does not. Both have a tremendous three dimensional effect. Colors are rich and varied. They are wool; circa 1920. Each measures 35" x 70". Rug on right is sold. Left is $1650.

  Mennonite Hooked Rug: Circa 1930; Ontario, Canada   $395

Imaginative geometric pattern hooked rug that effectively gives the impression of X's superimposed on concentric rectangles. Wool and cotton. Irregularities in the color of the grid are just that - they are not dirt. Very three dimensional impact. Measures 21 1/2" x 38"; circa 1930. From the Mennonite Frey family in Ontarion, Canada.

Star Spangled Banner Quilt: Circa 1880; Ohio   $2,950  

This strong Star Spangled Banner quilt is further emboldened by the use of solid color fabrics as well as the large size of the quilt. What is now a warm grey probably began as green. It has oxidized evenly and the color is very pleasing. The star motif is repeated in with LeMoyne stars in quilting. Sawtooth border is an excellent continuation of the triangles making up the stars. Unwashed condition. Measures 91" square; Ohio origin.
