Nine Patch Quilt with Zigzag: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania
  Nine Patch Quilt with Zigzag: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $835

It is difficult to imagine that a quilt as fresh and crisp in condition as this Nine Patch is more than 125 years old. It was obviously packed away and never saw the light of day. Beautiful fabrics; wonderful zigzag border makes a great frame. Quilting in off blocks done in the same nine patch design as the primary pattern. Border quilted with diagonal lines. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; measures 76" x 90".

Bricks Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Maryland
  Bricks Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Maryland   $675

Streamlined, perhaps original pattern that I have termed Bricks, for want of a more proper name. Wonderfully abstract in its simplicity. Nicely quilted including concentric half circles in the border that are a terrific contrast to the geometry of the rest of the quilting as well as the pieced pattern. Measures 40" x 55"; excellent condition. Maryland origin.

Flying Geese quilt ( closely related to Birds in the Air but with fewer triangles) done in lovely shades of soft pink and grayish blue. Outer two borders quilted with a wide chevron; cable quilted inner border. Spotless condition. Name of maker available to purchaser. Maryland origin; circa 1930. Measures 72" x 76".

  Dove in the Window Quilt: Circa 1860; Pennsylvania   $1,650

This unusual quilt is closest to the Dove in the Window or Goose Tracks patterns. Well made with a terrific, whimsical swag border.

Lone Star Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania   $2,400  

Dramatic Lone Star quilt (aka Star of Bethlehem) with the most unusual of background fabrics. It's a print I've never seen before that has the profile of a woman. It may be earlier than the calicoes of the star. Unwashed condition. Some oxidation to the solid orange fabric. Measures 100" square, unusually large for the 1870's when it was made. Pennsylvania origin.
