Stylized Baskets Quilt: Circa 1890; Pennsylvania
  Stylized Baskets Quilt: Circa 1890; Pennsylvania   $975

This unusual geometric quilt can be seen in several ways. Vertically, the large blocks look like giant Hourglass patterns. Horizontally, they look like stylized Baskets. In either case, it is an imaginative pattern, well executed. Unwashed condition with several minor age spots. Measures 70" x 82"; Pennsylvania origin. Circa 1890. A note pinned to the quilt says it was "pieced by Grandmother Haines - signed Grace Woodbury".

Bow Tie blocks are quilted in straight lines; the solid blocks are quilted with diagonal lines, all contributing to the sense of vibrancy and movement of the quilt. Measures 77" x 81"; circa 1910.

Fifteen Point Star Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania
  Fifteen Point Star Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $1,985

It's difficult to say whether or not the maker of this Fifteen Point Lone Star Quilt set out to make this pattern or whether it got out of control. In either case, it is likely unique. It is interesting that five point stars surround the central image and the overall star essentially has five sides. So maybe this was all intentional? Unwashed, immaculate condition. Wonderful selection of fabrics. Measures 80" square; Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.
