Maryland Album Quilt: Circa 1860   $2,250   

Nine block album quilt with wreaths and pots of flowers, no two of which are the same. The pots of flowers in the corners facing inward give a nice symmetry to the overall design. It is clearly a rural version of a Baltimore Album quilt. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. It is well quilted with feathered vines along the grid and border. The applique border flowers are an effective continuation of the shapes of the flowers within the quilt. Maryland... Click for details

Farmer's Delight Quilt: Circa 1850; Virginia   $885  

Farmer's Delight is a pattern almost always originating in Virginia and most often in the Shenandoah Valley. It also goes by the name Farmer's Fancy. This early example is beautifully quilted with concentric clamshell patterns that have also been seen in other Farmer's Delights. It has been professionally laundered and is in spotless condition. The background fabric is slightly creamier in color than the medallions in which the circles are set. With very close examination, one can find several... Click for details

Swirling Pinwheels Quilt: Circa 1880   $2,975  

This is one of the most dramatic examples of a Swirling Pinwheel (aka Rising Sun or Wheel of Life) quilt that I have seen. The use of solid red and green punctuated by orange centers gives it real drama. The rows of diamonds around the Pinwheels add to the pulsating quality. LeMoyne Stars are another fine element. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. There are some slight irregularities in the green which is probably a home dyed fabric and somewhat fugitive. It is quilted with... Click for details

Wandering Foot Quilt: Circa 1870' Pennsylvania   $1,400  

After much searching, I have not found a comparable pattern to this. It is closest to those known as Wandering Foot; Burr and Thistle or The Swallow. Unlike them, this quilt has a square center while the others have centers with a curved or concave square. Regardless of the name, this quilt is well made. It is quilted with diamond patterns. Placing the blocks so that the tails abut one another creates an unexpected secondary pattern. The border is a luscious print that combines well with the... Click for details

This is an especially nice example of the always popular Cat's Paw hooked rug pattern. It is made of irregular circles with just the right amount of red to add "pop" to the brown and tan tones. The multiple variegated borders are a wonderful frame. The rug is made of wool and in perfect condition. It is professionally mounted on a stretcher measuring 27 1/4" x 40 3/4".
