Q9062 Broken Dishes with Double Sashing
c.>1950
60 x 83 inches
New England
$900

The blue in this quilt is really turquoise. But the actual color you see depends on your monitor, so feel free to view it on another computer which may display colors more accurately.

This rendition of Broken Dishes has been created in very large dramatic blocks. Each block is apx. 10 x 10-1/4 inches. The creator must have loved to quilt. Pieced by hand with amazingly small stitches, she has quilted in the 1940s double lined manner. Where there is always only one stitch line, she has done a double line. This quilt is done in a highly sought after turquoise color. Using only solid fabrics, it can be easily adapted to your already chosen printed fabrics. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.

Q8387 Jacob's Ladder
c.1940
74 x 86 inches
Pennsylvania
Original price: $1,100
Sale price: $750

This funky adaptation of Jacob’s Ladder feels more like modern art than an antique. This brings up the question: who copied whom? As bold and graphic as this quilt appears when hanging, the visual impact is much more subdued when laid on a bed. Measuring 74 x 86 inches, this wonderfully executed quilt can fit a range of beds from single to double to queen. There’s a 2-3/4 inch border, in a slightly different shade of white from the body of the quilt. On the main body of the quilt there are a few blocks also having this fabric. Unless you’re searching for these blocks, you will not discern them from the other blocks. This quilt has 6 inch square blocks. There are 6" solid white, then pieced 9 patch blocks. The opposing corners when joined together create a different horizontal pattern. Completely hand pieced and hand outline quilted, this quilt has a turned over binding from back to front finished by hand. The binding is also outline quilted, giving the look of a separate applied binding. This wonderfully artistic quilt appears to be unused. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.

Q9081 Yo-Yo

63 x 85 inches
Andover, MA
$300

A happy whimsical Yo-Yo “Quilt”. We photographed this Yo-Yo hanging over a white sheet. Whatever solid color you have on your bed will show through when you place this Yo-Yo on top. I have heard happy tales of children cutting out fabrics for their mothers and grandmothers to help make this “quilt". This is the perfect way to use up all the fabric scraps left over from making clothing and quilts for the family. During the depression, many people made their own clothes, which left many scraps to use for this type of "quilt”. The Yo-Yo’s measure 1-3/4” in diameter. The royal blue solid color fabric creates a very graphic piece of art. In perfect, unused condition and organically hand washed by Betsey. Family name upon sale.

Q8931 Bow Tie / Snowball Bassinet Quilt
c.1885
24 x 34 (61 x 86.4 cm)
PA
$790

A sweet, early bassinet quilt hand pieced and quilted in the Bow Tie pattern. The maker's choice of palette in solid Turkey red, cheddar and off white make it graphic, while her imprecise cutting and hand piecing make it charmingly naïve. Add to that evidence of somewhat irregular hand quilting stitches and it suggests creation by a young girl, possibly for a new sibling? Whatever its history it makes for a great piece of folk art for either a traditional or contemporary setting. The placement of color makes a snowball or bull's eye pattern with the off white bow ties becoming the background.

Bow Tie blocks measure between 3½ inches square to 3¾ inches square. The wonderful cheddar border measures approximately 2 inches on the long sides and ⅞ inches on the short sides. The off white backing folds to the front and is hand stitched down to form the ⅜ inch binding. Hand quilting includes outline stitching for the bow ties and corner blocks, with double parallel lines stitched in the cheddar border.

Professionally hand washed by Betsey this little quilt was used and lovingly cared for and is in excellent condition. It can be shipped to you on approval for private viewing.

Q8531 Optical Illusion Quilt
c.1950
70 x 79 inches
New England
$850

This is an unknown pattern comprised of a combination of at least three or four known patterns. In today’s world, the woman who created this quilt would probably be an engineer. A mathematical and engineering feat, this optical illusion quilt, because of the fabrics, has resulted in a very happy and positive piece of art. Pieced by machine and quilted by hand, the fabrics date from the 1920s to 1950. Each and every triangle is outline quilted by hand and some are echo quilted, also by hand. There is an 8-1/2 inch raspberry pink border with a 4 inch wide rope design quilted all around the edge. The binding measures 3/8 inch and is finished by machine. The corners of this quilt are curved, creating a wonderful effect when on a bed. This graphic quilt would also be great on a wall.

It has today’s colors, raspberry and turquoise. One pattern is a 4 patch broken dishes, one is the LeMoyne or Ohio Star, a third pattern is a variation of Jacob’s Ladder, while the forth pattern is the Ocean Wave. The backing is a whole cloth raspberry pink, enabling this quilt to become completely reversible. What a mathematical masterpiece! This quilt appears to be in perfect, unused condition, is professionally washed by Betsey and is ready for a new home.

Q8953 Yoyo Coverlet with Lavender Paths
c.1930
86 x 108 (218.4 x 274.3 cm)
Found in Maine
$850

This is a lovely and quite large Yoyo coverlet. Strictly speaking not a quilt as it is not backed, quilted or tied, this wonderful textile would make a happy statement wherever it was displayed. Each hand gathered yoyo is 2 inches in diameter, hand sewn to its surrounding neighbors to create a fun display piece for your home or as a coverlet on the bed over your down comforter or Matelasse spread.

We can't begin to count the number of different 1920's to 1930 cottons used in the making of this coverlet. The soft purple and lavender paths create a nice pattern overall. With its large size and multiple hues it can be used almost anywhere a splash of fun and color is desired, from a bedroom to a playroom and beyond. Professionally hand washed by Betsey this Yoyo coverlet is in perfect condition and can be sent to you on approval for viewing in the privacy of your home.

Sale price: $700

This graphic quilt, in a medium pink color that some might call Flamingo Pink, is a perfect fit for a single or double bed. This color is both vibrant and happy, and the quilt is all hand pieced and hand quilted with an appliquéd 3/8 inch binding by machine. Years ago the average woman would not boast about possessions. As a result possibly this woman was trying to let people know she had treadle sewing machine. Where she was capable of this quality of work then why use a sewing machine? The blocks used in creating this quilt measure approx. 11 x 11 inches with 2-3/4 inch wide sashing. Two opposing borders of the edging measure 5-1/2“, the remaining two borders opposite each other measure 3”. The quilting is nice and neat and from the photo of the backing, you can see that there’s an abundance of it. This quilt appears to be unused and now professionally washed by Betsey, it is ready for a new home.

Q8496 Four Block Applique with Hawaiian Design
c.1930
70 x 75 inches
New Holland, PA
$850

This exquisitely designed quilt is all hand pieced, hand appliquéd and hand quilted. The creator has borrowed concepts from two different social backgrounds to create her piece of art. The 4 block formation was a design from the 2nd quarter of the middle part of the 19th century. The appliquéd motif is reminiscent of a Hawaiian design and may actually be a copy of such. This is beautifully appliquéd, reverse appliquéd and quilted with minuscule stitches. There are stars quilted in the raspberry pink center and around the center of the Hawaiian block. The 24 inch square blocks have an apx 2-1/2 inches of sashing around the blocks creating a visual of 4 separate blocks. The white areas around the appliqué have cross hatched stitching and the each appliqué piece has been outline quilted.

On opposite sides of the quilt the border white is 7-1/4 inches. Nine inch white borders make up the two opposing sides. The front is turned over to the back and stitched by hand for a finished binding. Turned over bindings were often used in Pennsylvania. The backing is a heavy duty cotton almost giving the appearance of linen. In apparently unused condition and now hand washed by Betsey, she is ready for a new home.

Q6937 Squares Quilt (possibly a four or nine patch)
c.1928
70 x 70 inches
Missouri
$650

This quilt is comprised of 441 3-1/4 inch squares. Where there are only two fabrics we may assume these were purchased. One of the squares is a wonderful 1920s calico with blues, yellows, reds and browns. The other squares are a medium blue, or cornflower blue. It is completely hand pieced and hand quilted. Most of the blocks are outlined quilted. The entire quilt is quilted diagonally in both directions every two inches. The backing is an ecru color muslin and the binding is the backing turned over to the front and stitched by hand. In unused condition from Missouri, this cotton quilt has been professionally hand washed by Betsey and is ready for its new home.



This lovely, cotton quilt is in the popular Double Wedding Ring pattern. Its extra appeal lies in the creator’s choice of solid pastels, reminiscent of rainbow sherbet, for her color palette. It starts with a lovely peach ground with rings consisting of soft blues, yellow, greens, pinks and pale lavender. The squares joining the rings are in the soft raspberry and watermelon green found in the rings.

Hand pieced and hand quilted with echo, outline and cross hatch stitches this beauty also boasts hand stitched flowers with eight petals in each of the large peach areas inside the rings. The backing is white and the skillfully applied ¼ inch watermelon green binding follows the scalloped edge of the quilt.

A lovely creation that is classic in design and refreshing in fabric selection and arrangement. This quilt was used but lovingly cared for and is in excellent, soft condition. Professionally hand washed by Betsey and ready for your home.
