  Black Eyed Susan/Barnraising Quilt: Circa 1900   $2,100.00

To the best of my knowledge, this quilt pattern combining Black Eyed Susans with Barnraising is an original. The green has probably lightened with washing but the quilt remains vibrant and strong. The egg yolk yellow/ orange of the Barnraising perfectly continues the Black Eyed Susan theme. Measurements are 67" x 80". Probably Southern origin; circa 1900.

Delectable Mountains Crib Quilt: Circa 1860   $475.00  

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".
