Day 13 - A Month of Antique Quilts - Antique Red and Green Quilts

 Here's another antique Red and Green treasure, but a very different quilt from what you usually picture when you hear Red and Green Quilts. This is an antique signature quilt from Southeastern Pennsylvania and is a hand pieced and hand quilted quilt. 

The pattern is Rolling Stone and the blocks are set on point (diagonal set).

A close-up of one of the signature center squares, this for Levi Laudermilch (German) or Laudermilk in more English communities. This pattern was very popular for making signature quilts in the last half of the 19th century 1850 to 1890s in German communities in SE PA (areas around Philadelphia).

Another look that really shows off the cool feature of this quilt: the alternating red and green star blocks. There were a number of these signature Rolling Stone quilts made in SE PA but this is the only one I've found (so far) with an alternating star block.


  1. I love that there are no neutrals in this quilt--it is just saturated with color!

  2. Another very interesting quilt that you've shared here!

  3. That's a real beauty, and I love the unique setting.
