Strippy Quilt with Fruits; Circa 1930
  Strippy Quilt with Fruits; Circa 1930   $485.00

Droll seems like the best word to describe this unusual 1930's strippy quilt depicting various fruits. The same fabric was pieced in two different colorways to create an unusual palette. Strawberries, pears and apples were printed to look like lace as well as in solid colors. Reverses to a totally different printed backing seen in last thumbnail. Can be used equally well on either side. Pristine condition; measures 76 x 82".

Corn and Beans Quilt: Circa 1910; Pennsylvania
  Corn and Beans Quilt: Circa 1910; Pennsylvania   $775.00

Geometric quilt that comes closest in pattern to Corn and Beans or Fox and Geese. Placement of the blocks, as well as the use of fabrics, makes this soft toned quilt quite dazzling in patterning. There is actually not a secondary or background block. Both take on equal prominence. Shirting plaids and stripes are nicely complemented by the double blue and pink calico prints. Unwashed condition; one tiny brown spot visible in close-up photos. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1910.

Pinwheels Quilt with Matching Pillow Sham: Circa 1920   $775.00  

This Pinwheels pattern quilt is calm and serene, yet not boring. It is a sophisticated shade of dusty rose done in cotton sateen, giving it something of a "dressed up" feel. The matching pillow sham is a true rarity. It would serve for the purpose for which it was intended, but equally well as a matching dresser scarf or wall hanging. Professionally laundered; nicely quilted. Quilt measures 79" square; pillow sham is 31" x 78". Circa 1920.
