Lancaster County Amish Bars Crib Quilt: Circa 1950
  Lancaster County Amish Bars Crib Quilt: Circa 1950   $450.00

Most unusual to have a genuine Lancaster County Amish Bars Crib quilt, but particularly as late as 1950. Fabrics are a combination of rayon and wool knit. Subtle, clearly intentional difference in the bars. The outer two are wider and a different fabric than the central two. Measures 29" x 34".

Bricks Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Maryland   $675.00  

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.

Cats Crib Quilt: Circa 1930; Pennsylvania
  Cats Crib Quilt: Circa 1930; Pennsylvania   $450.00

What could be more appealing than this Cats crib quilt pattern? Does the fact that there are nine of them relate to the traditional notion of cats having nine lives? Nicely embroidered with details including a collar on each animal. Cable quilting in the border and concentric diamonds throughout interior. Pristine condition. Colors softer that in photos. Measures 35" x 36". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1930.
