Single Irish Chain Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Missouri
  Single Irish Chain Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Missouri   $725

It is interesting that this Irish Chain is actually created totally with Improved Nine Patch blocks. Positioning them as the maker did makes for a lovely diagonal Single Irish Chain. The same red squares were turned on point to create a very effective diamond border. Quilted with patterns of diamonds. Measurements are 36" x 44". Columbia, Missouri origin; circa 1880.

Delectable Mountains Crib Quilt: Circa 1860   $475  

This Delectable Mountains crib quilt is done in an unusual and clever way. Using the same blocks in alternating red and white and abutting them as she did, creates an entirely new image. It is well quilted with small squares in the white blocks and diagonal lines in the border. The red has softened from multiple washings in its 150 year lifetime but it remains a strong pattern. Measurements are 36 1/2" x 43".

Nine Patch Crib Quilt/Wild Goose Chase: Ca.1920;Pa.   $650  

This Nine Patch Crib Quilt must have been made by someone with a droll sense of humor. The centers utilize printed fabric with geese and the entire piece is framed by a Wild Goose Chase border. I prefer to think this was not coincidence. Unused condition; has several tiny spots that I do not think merit laundering. Quilted with diagonal lines. Utilizes several different blue fabrics. Measures 36" x 37". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.
