QT466 Bear Paw Quilt Top
c.1835
70 x 88 inches
Maine
SOLD

The Garden Maze quilt pattern is one of the earliest New England pieced pattern designs. This artist has combined the Garden Maze with a 9 patch Bear Paw design. There is a huge array of early 19th century fabrics dating from c.1810 to c.1835. The yardage needed to make the garden maze and fabrics used in the bear paw were expensive - therefore we assume created by an affluent family. Studying antique quilts is both historical and sociological. This quilt top has a rare and unusual over-dyed green calico and very rare pink and white gingham. The 13” blocks include a 1” green border and the Bear Paws are made up of one 4 x 2-1/2” triangle and four 2” diamonds. Most beds during this era measured about 52” wide which is what this quilt top would have been created for. Completely hand pieced (made many years before the sewing machine was in public use). This piece should be worth $800, however, where there are seams that need to be restitched, I’m selling it for $325. Very truly very artistic piece of textile art. Ready to be sent for your approval.

QT501 Squares Quilt Top
c.1945
80 x 89 inches + 16" tail
Pennsylvania
$550

Wow.....what a happy quilt this will make! Definitely a quilt top for a fabric junkie with dozens of different unused fabrics. There are apx 961 2-1/2” squares on this quilt top that have been pieced by hand. It appears to be comprised of fabric scraps dating mostly from the 1920’s and 30’s. However I found one fabric dating from 1940 so this quilt top could not have been created before that time. The fabric used in the creation of this top is a varity of clothing and curtains...the patterns are a variety of strips, plaids and an unknown number of different prints. Whatever your color, it is in this piece. The fabrics are unsed and will quilt up beautifully. Ready to be sent for your approval.



QT500 Mosaic Quilt Top
c.1830
82 x 74 inches + 16" tail
Maine
$625

When this quilt top was created, the pattern's name was a Mosaic. The Grandmother’s Flower Garden pattern was not designed until the 1920’s. This top was created for an early four post bed. New England was the only area that created quilts with "cut outs" for 4 post beds. The fabrics are unused, the colors are vibrant and in perfect condition, looking as if it were created yesterday. Each hexagon has 1-3/4” sides. The quilt top is comprised of a chrome yellow calico, a turkey red calico, double pink calico and over-dyed green calicos, representing the four colors of each garden. The "gardens" are joined with white paths. The green and pink calicos are very unusual. The fabrics by themselves are worth far more than the price of the top. At the time this quilt top was made, all these fabrics were very expensive, possessed only by affluent families. This quilt top can be finished for a bed, as is, or the tail removed and the fabric used to create pillows. Ready to be sent for your approval.

QT224A Totally Unique Double Wedding Ring w/ Prairie Points Quilt
c.1928
80 x 93 inches
New England
$875

This totally unique Double Wedding Ring could be described as a scrap bag quilt, however, all of the fabric is unused, mint condition, fine quality percale fabric. Because of all the mint condition fabrics used in the construction of this quilt top it seems that it was made by a women from a family of comfortable means. The addition of the hundreds of prairie points would have been weeks and weeks of additional work. Full ring diameter in this top is 20”. Each piece in the ring measures 1 x 2”. The quilt is completely hand pieced with tiny stitches. I’ve never seen anything like this in my 30 years of business. Strong enough to be quilted and used....It is just perfect!

QT825 Stained Glass Broken Dishes Quilt Top

64 x 72 inches
New England
$625

My first reaction upon seeing this quilt top hanging on the wall was “Oh Wow!” This Stained Glass Broken Dishes quilt top has been comprised of wool challis fabrics with the blocks on point with sides measuring 5”. The sashing joining these blocks measures 1-1/2” in width and creates the stained glass effect.. The fabrics are expensive, gorgeous wool challis, very sophisticated plaids and some beautifully woven fabrics. Because the entire top has been foundation pieced and joined securely by hand, it is strong enough not to be quilted. This top can be stuffed, backed and reverse tied. A very sophisticated quilt top.

Wow...a quilt top that is certainly a fabric junkie's delight. This top has been created from 400 3-1/2” squares. Most of these fabrics are from the 20’s, 30’s and a few from the 1940’s - making this a 1940’s quilt top. There is one piece from the 1890’s. Every color, pattern and design is represented here. I would say that most fabrics are feedsacks while the one 1890's fabric ( 2 squares ) are very fine fabric. If you want to study fabrics...this is the piece for you...and easy to outline quilt..

QT822 Salmon with White Baskets Quilt Top

New Hampshire
$375

It’s very difficult to find two color quilt tops, especially in salmon and white. Created entirely from 8” blocks on point and made with a very fine cotton fabric....."very crisp" This depression era top was made from purchased yardage fabric leading us to the belief that the family was of comfortable means at this time. Each meticulously pieced basket is hand pieced with hand appliquéd basket handles. All blocks are joined by machine and it is now ready to quilt. This top should fit a twin or double bed, a throw on any size bed or a stunning wall hanging.

QT203 The Lone Star Quilt Top
c.1928
79 x 79 inches
Possibly from Ohio
$750

In most places this pattern is called the Star of Bethlehem. In Texas it’s called The Lone Star :-). This very graphic star is composed of hundreds of diamonds having 2-1/4” sides. The diamonds are hand pieced and then connected to the muslin cut outs, again by hand. On each space between the points, there are three hand appliquéd hand pieced stars on the muslin backing. Graphically stunning, this quilt top will fit a double or queen bed or as a throw on a king size bed. The colors used in the creation of this quilt are today’s colors and here we are almost a century later. Beautifully executed and waiting for the right quilter :-)

QT821 Cotton Chenille Embellished Bed Cover Quilt Top
Early 20th Century
75 x 92 inches
Believed to be from Texas or Oklahoma
$750

I found a very creative and well executed 20th century rendition of a 19th century tulip appliqué quilt. This coverlet had been painstakingly created with cut cotton chenille stitching being completely hand done. Original, unusual and beautifully executed. This piece of art is a happy light weight cotton bed cover.
Measuring 75 x 92”, this piece will nicely cover any size bed from a twin to a king as it can be placed in either direction. The creator had edged this coverlet with a 3” pink border surrounding the off white main fabric. The colors used in this folk art piece are typical for the 1920s and 1930s. Organically hand washed and ready for your home.

QT820 Foundation Pieced Crazy Quilt Top
c. 1935
76 x 78 inches
New England
$525

Happy, happy, happy :-). This is the best way I can describe this quilt top. As a result of the foundation pieceing, this quilt top doesn’t need to be quilted, only tied. The basic block is a 7” crazy quilt diamond. Then 11 plus diamonds are put together to create a strip 75” long. The next step was 14 of these strips sewn together to created this top. The foundation piecing was done by hand. The blocks and strips were then sewn by machine giving you a sturdy piece to work with. No matter what your depression era color scheme is, those colors are going to be on this quilt top. All of the fabrics on this quilt top are unused. It appears that these were scraps left over from whatever this seamstress was making. The two end rows are solid pieces of fabric instead of being pieced in a crazy quilt manner. This creates two borders for the quilt top. This top can be used in any direction. The photo shows the direction that looks (to my eye) the best when hanging. In unused ...unwashed condition...to be sent for your approval..

Dated and Initialed 1904-1910
48 x 61 inches
Maine
$625

This one of a kind Red Work Child’s Quilt appears to have taken 6 years to complete as it is dated 1904-1910. This special political, folksy Red Work quilt top has been created from 30 6-1/2” blocks joined together with a 3-1/2” red sashing. There’s an American flag flying over embroidered and dated initials, embroidery representing fireworks, probably representing the 4th of July celebration. This piece is filled with Victorian symbolism and items important to a little girl's life. Antique quilt tops are never washed until they are quilted, so this is in original, as found condition. Discovered in Maine. All ready for you to quilt or collect as is.

New England
$750

This huge mint condition quilt top is comprised of thousands of 1.25" hexagons. most of the fabrics appear to be from the 1920s and 1930s. One hexagon that I see is from the 1940s making it a 1940s quilt. As this quilt top is pieced using the English technique, one can finish the quilt by either quilting or reverse tying, as the hexagons will not come apart. Wonderful sought after green. Turned the long way, this flower garden would easily cover a king size bed.

76 x 84 inches
Pennsylvania
$425

Split triangles make up 7 1/2 inch blocks. The triangles measure 10x7 1/2x 71/2 inches. The quilt top must have been pieced by different women (and I say women because very few men were quilters), the reason for this is that some blocks are finished with a regular American basting stitch and some of the blocks are finished using a back stitch. Some of the thread used is linen, and some is cotton. A wonderful array of fabrics dating to the 1840s. The pieces are large enough that if someone wanted they could take it apart and make another design.

This triple Irish Chain/Sunshine and Shadows is beautiful. This was created in the 1930’s with 1920’s and 1930’s fabrics. Most fabrics are from the 20’s.

This may sound funny but another way that this quilt top can be used is as a table cover. The reason for this is because the quilt top is machine pieced and the edges have been turned over and finished by machine. Created from 8 inch blocks and from a blue chambray and wonderful 1920’s black plaids and yellow plaids. The triangles have 2 inch sides, the large corner triangles are apx 4 1/2 x 6 inches.

New York
$2500

Judea folk art is very rare. A Judea quilt top is even more rare. This amazing quilt top encompasses both categories. Created somewhere between 1875 and 1920, this wonderful piece of art was made before Adolph Hitler came to power.

It has The Star of David all around the border in the 3-1/2" squares. There are 8 turkey red Star of David throughout the quilt. There are 14 blocks of a beautifully pieced Star of Bethlehem. Each triangle has 1" sides. The Star of Bethlehem is comprised of fabrics dating from the middle of the 19th century.

Is it possible that this fabric was the clothing of some very beloved individual? In the middle is the initial "E", which I assume stands for the individual's last name. It is pieced on blue and rose color chambray fabric. Hand pieced. All done by hand with a running back stitch. This quilt top has been entirely pieced and appliqued by hand. The piecing has been done with a running back stitch indicative of the 19th century when individuals created either clothing or textiles meaning never to take them apart.
