CON JD4 Baltimore Album Kit Quilt
c.1945
80 x 94 (203.2 x 238.8 cm)
MA
$1,800

A lovely 20th century rendition of a beloved classic. The Baltimore Album quilt has known tremendous popularity and recognition from quilt collectors, quilt makers and enthusiasts alike since they first came on the scene in Baltimore, Maryland in 1848. Traditionally made by many hands, each contributor provided an appliqued or pieced block of her own design. This beautiful example of the beloved classic was made from a kit c.1945 using red, green, white and tan calicoes and solids on an off white ground.

Hand appliqued, reverse appliqued, and embroidered throughout in lovely floral wreaths, urns, birds and buds. The flowing red and green floral vining applique border is a gorgeous frame for the inner design. Hand quilted throughout in 1 ¾ inch diagonal cross hatch, parallel lines and chain-of-hearts bands using straight, even stitches. The front and off white backing each fold in to the center bat to form a knife edge carefully stitched closed with tiny, almost invisible stitches.

A wonderful Baltimore Album kit quilt in a great size and in perfect condition. It has been professionally hand washed by Betsey and can be sent to you on approval for private viewing.

This unique and stunning quilt in wonderful condition is from the Chester County area of Pennsylvania and showcases this quilter’s unique artistic perspective and advanced skill. She took a traditional oak leaf and reel pattern and, using a color palette popular from 1835 to 1865, made it her own by adding her favorite florals and a unique border. Each 15 ½ inch square block has a skillfully hand appliqued overdyed green calico oak leaf and reel with a solid Turkey red cotton bud, a Turkey red tulip, a double pink calico tulip and a solid Turkey red daisy with soft blue calico inner petals and a yellow center!

A somewhat gothic in feel 9 ½ inch wide papercut outer border surrounds the 16 inner blocks and makes for a very intriguing and complex design overall. Complimenting the intricacy of the design the simple but fine hand quilting is in outline and straight line stitches set 5/8 inches apart over the entire piece. The backing is in fine white cotton with a 3/8 inch hand applied Turkey red binding.

Vibrant, graphic and full of life this quilt tells of a quilter who loved flowers and intricate design, was skilled at her art and was not afraid to show it! Professionally hand washed by Betsey this quilt is ready to ship to you on approval for private viewing in your home.

CONJM 1 Red, White & Green Floral Applique
Dated 1850; Mildred E. Hiller
75 x 89 (190.5 x 226 cm)
$2,900

A sweet and very lovely floral applique quilt executed in solid red, a double pink calico and solid green on pure white. A garden of 42 appliqued blooms and countless buds make this antique beauty a balm for any Spring lover’s soul. It makes us happy just looking at it. Each flower block measures approximately 11 1/2 inches square with an appliqued meandering budded floral vine border 4 inches wide surrounding the entire ‘garden’.

Applique stitches are fine as are the stitches in the hand quilting which consists of four petal flowers stitched in the center of each red flower, 9 petal flowers with 3/8 inch spaced parallel lines in the white ground, and of special note: a hand stitched heart in the four corners of every floral block. Embroidered in red floss is the date ‘1850’ and the name ‘Mildred E. Hiller’, we presume either the maker of the quilt or the person who owned it. Betsey feels the embroidery was done sometime after the completion of the quilt to document it.

A hand applied 1/4 inch wide solid green binding matches the green of the leaves and vine. The backing is white cotton. This beautiful and pristine quilt is in excellent condition. Professionally washed by Betsey it can be sent to you on approval for viewing in the privacy of your home.

A fabulous quilt by an extremely creative and talented needle artist, this piece was completed in the 1840’s, using solid Turkey red, a gorgeous solid teal blue, and white cottons.

Lancaster Co, PA
Was $6,800 Now $6,300

This exquisite quilt defines what many of us think of when we hear the words "classic mid-nineteenth century American quilt”. The Whig Rose quilt's double border contains a beautifully executed floral design in a variation of the early Whig Rose pattern. Solid Turkey red, an over dyed green on green print, and a yellow calico are set on a pristine white background in the form of finely executed appliqués stitched entirely by hand.

Each Whig Rose applique measures approximately 26 x 30 inches and contains very fine hand quilting in outline and flower petal designs. The white background of each block is quilted with unique floral and leaf patterns. The inner 1 ½” white border has hundreds of alternating Turkey red and over dyed green appliqued leaves surrounding the central Whig Rose design.

Framing the inner design is a 7 ½” white outer border with quilting executed in an undulating feather vine pattern with stylized tulips. In each of the four corners is a 10” double line quilted heart with interior diagonal cross hatch stitching. The use of hearts is an indication this quilt was related to love or marriage, possibly made as either a wedding or anniversary gift.

A masterpiece of hand appliqué in traditional and original patterns executed by an experienced and clever hand. Unused and professionally hand washed by Betsey. This quilt can be sent to you on approval.

Festoon your home this holiday season with the perfect antique hand appliqued quilt for art on your wall, bed or decorating in general.

The quilt has a white backing and is finished with a ¼ inch hand applied white binding.

This piece is extremely ordered and well planned but gives the impression of free spirited gaity, emphasized by the “scattering” of appliqued buds and the various sizes of the hand quilted multi-petaled flowers and free flowing leafy vines.

This lovely quilt would be the focal point of your holiday decorating or any time of year. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.

What a fantastic original quilt creation. Fabrics used are solid colors of Turkey red, green and blue on a white background plus the colors of the flowers. This stunningly graphic antique quilt, in fabulous condition, is a masterpiece of skilled needlework and unique design. Nine large “flowers” comprise the center area of the design. Each beautifully appliqued flower has 7 scalloped layers comprised of Turkey red, double pink calico and solid yellow. Each flower also has five appliqued buds both closed and open and stems with leaves. Some leaves also contain reverse appliqué work.

A 1 7/8 inch red and green diagonally striped border surrounds the inner blooms. The entire garden is then framed by an 11 inch border of blue swags with red tassels. Each Turkey red tassel is topped by three perfectly appliqued green leaves.

Quilting on this wonderful work of art has been done to the extreme with both imagination and skill. Lovely and varied quilting patterns include double line florals of tulips and 4 petal flowers, circles, and leaves. In addition, single line scallops are quilted around the red and green border with tilted diamond chains quilted inside the border. Echo and outline quilting is used throughout in the appliquéd pieces. Some of the quilting marks are still visible.

The backing is a high thread count solid white cotton. The binding is a ¼ inch applied red calico fabric appearing to be a later 19th century restoration.

Visually and technically this is truly a unique design statement from an accomplished and finely skilled needlewoman – a special treasure to highlight any collection of fine textile art. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.
