    Pennsylvania Amish Bars Doll Quilt - RARE

    Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, c. 1925, unknown maker. Amish babies were welcomed with quilts, usually made by their mothers or grandmothers. Today Amish crib or doll quilts are quite rare because they were put to hard use. This one was never used therefore it had to have been deliberately saved by the quilt maker. Pieced wools, good condition. 15" x 15".

    Tumbling Schoolhouses

    Tumbling Schoolhouses, Ohio, c. 1860. I have never seen a Schoolhouse quilt set up this way. The Teddy Roosevelt (26th president, 1901-1909) embroidered face was probably done after the quilt was made as the dates do not match. This quilt would have gone with me to Japan when I curated the Schoolhouse Exhibition if I had had it then. Cotton, good condition, 78" x 63.5".

    Starburst

    Floral Chintz quilt, appliquéd & pieced, a great example of the period. Features a central star with appliquéd stars surround and wide brown print border. Signed Mary H. Barlow in ink on the back, found in Ohio, c. 1825-1840. Extraordinarily large: at the time it was made, beds often had trundles and were very tall. Excellent condition; 106" x 128."
