Log Cabin Quilt        Out on approval!!

Offering this fabulous Log Cabin Quilt from the 1880's that is in excellent condition. Taking a look at the great number of fabrics in this quilt one can only imagine all the time it took to piece and make this quilt. The quilting is around the block and more or less in the ditch, so not easily seen from the front , but more so on the back. Small narrow width logs make up this beauty. Just seeing all the shirting fabrics used in this quilt and wondering if they were left overs after making clothes.  Also several conversation prints were used in this quilt. This is a great design, a light-dark log cabin, courthouse steps. From Little Compton, Rhode Island estate as I was told.

Offering this fine Tumbling Blocks or sometimes called Baby Blocks visual antique quilt. This is a fabulous quilt that is in, I would say, mint condition.

Whole Cloth Chintz Antique Quilt- Signed- 1830's

This is a fabulous chintz quilt that is in fabulous condition. Looks unused and has never been washed. The glaze is still on the chintz.  Circa 1830's and the size is 100x108, another detail of an early quilt. A wholecloth quilt that is all hand quilted at a nice 7 spi. Signed on the backside corner note attached,, Catherine P Evans. This name could be researched. These quilts of this age don't come along frequently and especially in this condition. For the binding the back was neatly turned to the front and hand stitched down and oh so narrow. Acquired in the NE USA. Originally in a quilt collectors estate, so unsure where she acquired it. Again,,,, this quilt would be considered excellent or even mint in terms of conditon. I see no wear or damage.

Flying Geese Quilt  --- SOLD

This wonderful patterned quilt,,, Flying Geese quilt is in excellent condition and looks not to have been used. Actually the top appears to be from the 1880's and was probably machine quilted in the1920's or so and then it appears someone added a binding facing on the back edge, which is on one side been taken off as shown.  It cound easily be rebound with more appropriate fabric. It has wonderful fabrics in making the top and has a good design. So look at the images ,,, and it also has  nice, thin old cotton batting.   If you love old fabrics,,, this is a super quilt and a good example of old machine quilting , as was often done.  Illinois

Mexican Rose Variation Trapunto- Sawtooth Border SOLD

This early red and green Mexican Rose Variation quilt is selling in "as is" condition. It has the most wonderful quilting stitches and the pattern and border really add to the interest in this quilt.  There is stuffed work/trapunto in the red petals and the vines.  Lots of work went into making this early beauty. Actually the quilt is very sound, with wear mainly in the red fabrics as the fabric used just did not hold up , as the ground is very good with just a couple of spots and the green fabric has no wear.  There is some what looks to be light water spots. The  neat original binding is in great shape. Someone at some time replaced some of the red fabric on the red applique, as shown, but  with TLC, could be restored with the correct  soft/faded red of the time or even some faded reproduction fabric.  The quilt could also be enjoyed as it is  knowing that someone over 150 years ago made this quilt  with skilled hands and care. The hand quilting is very well done at 10 spi. There are 16 blocks that make up the quilt with an interesting pattern. Lots of pictures to examine and enjoy and decide if this quilt is right for you.  The quilt came from a Massachusetts estate.

Six Point Stars and Stars Border Quilt- Mint

Offering this attractive Six Point Stars quilt that is in unused condition,, mint and never washed.  The colors are great and the prints in the stars are "happy" ,, as I call them. This quilt has an unusual border of the solid colored stars and the solid colored hexagons. There are stars quilted in the hexagon blocks.  The yellow backing is a nice shade of yellow. The hand quilting is well done at 7 spi. A separate binding of green was stitched on by hand. The size of this quilt, 86x89 , makes it one of the larger quilts and therefore can be used on a variety of beds if desired.  One can tell the maker of this quilt was particular,,, the maker even hand pieced the stars and hexagons. Lots of work went into this quilt. Displays well.

Log Cabin Quilt with Provenance attached

This unwashed Log Cabin antique quilt is more of a time period quilt , as the top looks to have been made around the turn of the century, 1900-1910 and then the note attached said the top was quilted in the winter of 1936 and 1937,, The note that is attached reads" This quilt was pieced by Grandmother Bowman before Robert T Bowman was 1 year old. Quilted by his mother Mrs  Emory T. Bowman winter of 1936 and 1937. For Robert T Bowman." It is hand quilted at a nice 8-9 spi. It has never been washed and is in excellent condition, but there are some storage spots on the border as shown. Wonderful to see the use of turn of the century fabrics and then to see the 1930's backing , that is relative to the note attached. For the binding the front is turned to the back and hand stitched down. A quilt one might want to research the family background. I acquired this in Texas, but it may have traveled there.

Early Album Signature Quilt Top SOLD-March Madness Sale
This is an early stamped signature quilt top. It has the name of Sarah A White, which is somewhat unusual as the same name is stamped in all the blocks. The top has a wonderful lot of early fabrics used in its making. Look at the fabrics that include some Turkey reds and so much more. The condition is excellent, with just a couple spots on the edge sashing that were thin and I backed them with early fabric as shown. It is hand pieced. Massachusetts.
