Antique finished fragments are perfect sections from quilts that were otherwise too damaged for restoration. (Remember, 95% of my quilt collection is in original condition, with no restoration necessary). The undamaged section of the antique quilt is removed and rebound with same date or older fabric. Occasionally, we are able to use fabric from the original quilt to rebind its fragment. These fragments are labeled, as that would be the only way of knowing that they are not original sized quilts.

Antique finished fragments are a wonderful way to purchase a doll or crib sized quilt with the same graphic impact at a fraction of the cost. Finished fragments can be displayed anywhere; on a table, wall, hallway, or in any room in your home. Finished fragments can be cotton, wool, or silk, including Crazy Quilt fragments. Our antique fragments date from the 18th century through the 1940?s.

When binding these fragments we always use same date or older original fabrics.

F789 Split Leaf Philodendron Finished Fragment
F789 Split Leaf Philodendron Finished Fragment
c.1850
17 x 38 inches
Pennsylvania
$725

This Philodendron plant quilt pattern was indeed very difficult to execute. All of the leaf pieces were executed using the reverse applique technique. This quilt was created around the time Americans discovered Hawaii along with all of their wonderfully creative art work. This quilt fragment is reminiscent of the Hawaiian quilts, but is definitely from Pennsylvania.
This was part of a larger quilt and is now a graphically wonderful piece of art. The skill level seen here is some of the best in the world of quilting tops. Reverse applique is a painstaking task which is beautiful when done correctly.
When originally made, all the leaves were the same shade of green. The over dyed green fabric has washed down to a yellowish green...while the beige leaves were tobacco dyed, the color of which dissipates when washed. Ironically, the beige we are left with is one of the much loved of today's colors.
We have bound the fragment with a 1/4" same date fabric matching the background of the quilt.
The size of this fragment is perfect for a wall hanging, in either direction... or as a rare and unusual centerpiece for any of your tables.
Organically hand washed by Betsey and ready to be sent for your at home approval.

F788 Border of Tulips Finished Fragment

Pennsylvania
$675

The center of this wonderful early quilt was badly torn beyond restoring...so we salvaged parts... Here we have part of the border...we moved one short end of the over dyed green to make a complete border.. Then we bound the fragment with 1/4" of the same date fabric....
Now you have an unusual Tulip applique quilt in perfect dimensions for over your couch, bed or any piece of furniture...Pieced and appliqued from Turkey Red and overdyed green, then hand quilted in a diagonal cross grid pattern.
Beautiful and happy :-)...

F787 Lone Star or Star of Bethlehem Center Finished Fragment
c.1865
38-1/2 x 38-1/2 inches
Pennsylvania
$950

WOW! That is my first comment when seeing this graphically exciting finished fragment. A Lone Star or Star of Bethlehem is really difficult to piece. All diamonds must be sewn exactly or you end up with a mountain in the center :-( Each diamond has 2" sides and are all hand pieced.
This dramatic quilt is executed in all solid color fabrics: chrome orange, cobalt blue and a rich chocolate brown. The wholecloth backing is a wonderful c.1845 brown stripe and paisley pattern. The applied binding on this fragment is the same cobalt blue and the same date as the quilt.
We have added "sleeves" to this fragment for you...now it is ready to hang as an amazing piece of art.
Organically hand washed by Betsey and ready to be sent for your in home approval.

F786 Rose Album Finished Fragment
c.1855
32-1/2 x 58-1/2 inches
New England
$825

Created in chrome orange and over-dyed green, this graphic and stunning finished fragment is a Rose Album quilt that will make an amazing wall hanging. Chrome orange is a very hard to find color in a perfect antique quilt.
Dating from c.1855, in perfect condition, this quilt piece measures 58-1/2 x 32-1/2 inches, rather large for a fragment. The blocks measure 13" square and are joined with 4-3/4 " sashing. The applied, restored binding is 1/4" and of the same date fabric.
Curved pieces are the hardest to work with when constructing a quilt top. The person must be very accomplished at both sewing and geometry. All work was executed by hand...both piecing and quilting. This quilt was created before the sewing machine was mass produced.
Organically hand washed by Betsey and ready to be sent, at no charge, for your in home approval.

F784_F785 Quilt Fragments
c.1875
25-1/2 x 25-1/2 inches
25 x 27 inches
Pennsylvania
$400 and $425

Shown here are two fragments which are actually a pair of fragments taken from a much larger quilt. Created during the 19th century and quintessential Pennsylvania. The backing is a gorgeous 1875 design. One fragment measures 25-1/2" x 25-1/2" and is $400. The other one measures 25" x 27" and is $425.
I am dating these mid-19th century. The colors are chrome orange, a deep rich cobalt blue and a coffe color brown. The little quilts were in perfect condition when we cut them down as fragments. In addition we used the original fabric of the binding to create the 2 sides binding of these two little pieces that were unbound. I see that one of the origional sides has a few tears on the binding so I have priced it lower.
The quilting is wonderful and is executed in an approximately one and a half inch diagonal grid. The applique stitching is teeny-weeny. The hearts indicate that this quilt was a wedding present. There are five hearts on each piece in the center of which I believe are folk art pineapples.
Having organically hand washed these quilts they are now ready to be sent for your in-home approval.

F783 Miniature Log Cabin Quilt Fragment
c.1850
27-1/4 x 27-1/2 inches
New England
$1,400

I know I've said it before, but the Log Cabin patterns are some of my favorites. This diminutive quilt is a miniature Log Cabin pattern in a fragment. The blocks displayed here measure approximately 7-1/4 inches each. The logs only measure approximately a quarter of an inch each in width. The backing is an early c.1850s brown calico. Of all the fabrics used in the composition of this little masterpiece, the earliest one I see appers to be c.1825. The fabrics used are very, very expensive wool Challis. I can see a few basting stitches from the quilt's creation. The size of this quilt, measuring 27-1/2 x 27-1/4", is a wonderful size either for a wall hanging in a prominent place or as a topper on a table with beautiful candlesticks.
In perfect condition, this quilt top was unused when I made a fragment and a bear from it. I did so because the rest of the quilt had a huge hole of unknown origin! This quilt is sophisticated, gorgeous, perfect, and in perfect condition.
It's also finished with 3/8 inch early brown chintz binding all hand applied. The piecing is all by hand of course at this early date. I'm dating the quilt circa 1850.

F400 Silk Broken Dishes Double 4 Patch Fragment
c.1840
11 x 30 inches
Massachusetts
$325
Early silk quilts were normally created in an affluent family environment. Silk fabrics of this time period were usually imported and very expensive. The creator of this quilt would have needed free time to do this work, as a silk quilt was only for "show" and not to be used for warmth. The backing of this finished fragment is an early chintz dress lining. Again, a sign of affluence. This little piece comes from a quilt that was unused but damaged. We took the perfect part to make this fragment and bound it with same date black silk fabric. A wonderful way to display this piece is either as an exquisite table runner or wall hanging.

Some of these fabrics are even rare hand painted block prints. This fragment is comprised of 12 blocks each measuring 8" square. Every other block is a lemoyne star alternating with a red gingham block. The backing is a c.1800 fabric. The 3/8” binding has been created from the original fabric on the quilt.
With the fabric colors mainly browns, reds, blues and taupes we have today’s colors appearing on a very early quilt.
A perfect size piece of art for a wall or a center piece on your table.

25 x 30 inches
New England
$525

Comprised of 12 9x9” blocks, this wonderful little fragment dates from c.1835. The backing of this little wall hanging or table topper dates from the late 18th century and is a minuscule brown and black stripe with a black calico print. Naturally this quilt was created by hand, as it was made many years before the use of the sewing machine. Every other block in this quilt is a pieced LeMoyne Star variation with a center square. The alternating blocks were created from a small red and white gingham fabric created during the early part of the 19th century. This quilt fragment was taken from a huge four post quilt. Four post quilts were only made in New England resulting in proof of where it was created. A four post bed quilt has the bottom corners cut out to go around the posts forming a T shape. This quilt fragment is an easy size to become art for your wall. Organically hand washed and ready to be sent for your approval.

Possibly New York
$925
$450

We are fortunate to be able to create two more finished fragments from the same quilt. This one contains 6 blocks, and the other contains 2 blocks. The Mariner's Compass quilt pattern is one that is prized for the amazing craftsmanship as well as graphic impact....naturally colors are of the utmost importance. Circular pieces are the hardest cut pieces to execute in a quilt, followed by fine points. This fabulous fragment has both of these characteristics. Comprised of solid green, taupe, cheddar and off-white, this graphic mariners compass fragment is a size that is easy to display. Completely hand pieced and hand quilted. The binding is made from an 1840s over-dyed green calico containing the same green as in the compass. Hearts are appliquéd in the corners and the edges of this special little quilt. There is echo quilting as aell as outline quilting. The backing is linen, typical of this c.1850 quilt. Organically hand washed and ready to be sent for your approval in your home.

New England

These origional condition quilt fragments are origionally from a four poster quilt. This quilt was created using an appliqued original Oak Leaf and Wave design with this indigo block print calico onto a white backing. These amazing pieces were the side drop on an early 1815 four post quilt and are in perfect condition. I am surmising that someone cut off three overhanging drops of this quilt to make it fit a particular sized bed from the 20th century. I cannot imagine who would taken a scissors to this early quilt. However, as a result we have some amazing Indigo and white quilt fragments. I’ve finished the strips in different sizes to accommodate various size walls. These fragments can be used together or separately. We have bound the unfinished edges so the newly bound edge matches the original bottom binding of the quilt. Hand appliquéd, outline quilted and diagonal cross hatch quilting fills the open white spaces. As a result that the oak leaves are not quilted, they have a dimensional look. I believe the origional quilt came from NY. Organically washed and ready to be sent for your approval.....one or more

This fragment came from an unused quilt. Red, white and blue quilts and fragments are hard to find. Machine pieced and hand quilted. Wonderfully graphic. Post civil war turkey red and confederate blue and white are the colors of this patriotic fragment. Difficult to date due to solid fabrics and no prints, it is somewhere between 1880 and 1910.

F426 Red & White Feathered Star Fragment
c.1825
each approx 15 x 15
PA
$150 each (2 available)

Feathered Star fragments from a very early quilt - and in gorgeous red and white. A pattern which is always sought after, we have five single feathered star fragments saved from a much larger quilt. Each star is comprised of the same fabric: a small scale white doughnut-like circle on red. Entirely hand pieced they are also skillfully hand quilted in 1/2 inch cross hatch in a grid pattern for the stars and 1/2 inch diagonal cross hatching for the white joining blocks, all executed using very tiny stitches.

We chose a red and white striped fabric of the same date for the 1/4 inch applied binding which sets off each star beautifully. The backing is the same white as used on the front. These pieces are wonderful either alone (they are $175 each) or displayed as a grouping as we have shown them. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.
