1920′s & 1930′s – These charming blocks represent not only a popular revival of quilt interest, but the real birth of the quilt industry and quilt guilds. From World War I on, fabric notion companies, newspapers and magazines increasingly published old block patterns and invented new ones to fan the growing flames of quilt fever. This period’s style favored appliqués of clear pastel fruit and flower colors, often set against white.
Baltimore Album – Masterpieces of appliqué artistry from a quilt style that developed in Baltimore, Maryland from around 1846-1852. These rare album quilts are known for ornate appliqué blocks separated by red sashes. Typically these exquisitely sewn quilts were presented as gifts, inscribed with mottos and autographs by those contributing blocks. Today, antique Baltimore Album quilts bring higher prices than any other quilt style.
Folk Art Blocks – This collector’s edition of nineteenth-century appliqué blocks is perfect for Civil War or late-Victorian reproduction quilts – or new quilts with country charm! Featuring the best-known appliqué blocks from 1850-1900, this vintage collection celebrates the romance of American exploration and expansion.
