All Small Quilts

Wall Hangings and Crib Quilts

These small quilts were selected to please demanding quilt lovers. Showing a diversity of patterns, styles, and colors, these quilts are all beautifully designed and very well constructed. Note how carefully each has been pieced and hand quilted. These quilts are the best of the best Lancaster has to offer — they are far superior to the small quilts made as souvenirs for tourists.

While small compared to a bed quilt, these wall hangings are still large in comparison with most paintings or prints found in homes. With their dramatic use of color and texture they can become the visual focal point of any room in your home. Consider lighting them as you would a fine painting.

As with our larger quilts, these quilts are made one at a time in Amish and Mennonite homes — they are not mass produced. We only have one of each to sell.

The small quilts listed below are available for immediate sale and when ordered will be shipped, almost always, no later than the next business day. This page is updated when new quilts are listed or quilts sold.

If you see a small quilt that you love, but it is the wrong size — please contact us. We can check to see if a similar well-made small quilt in the right size is available. We can also arrange for a small quilt to be custom made.

  • The color, shape and the dimension in this Tumbling Block displays C Jean Horst’s disciplined ability to arrange colors in a totally symmetrical way and yet produce a complex overall design. There are stars and three dimensional blocks, easy to spot with careful inspection. Also the blocks rotate around a small black star central to the quilt. The light colored top of each block moves as the blocks rotate around, forming a jagged circle. Perhaps the quilt gets its name from the multiple lines of symmetry that intersect and echo throughout, or possibly from the way the colored blocks seem to tumble out from the center black star. The quilting was done inside the blocks. Squint your eyes and enjoy a somewhat different view of this kaleidoscope of color. ! Magnificant office wall or foyer piece. 100% cotton fabrics. Sleeve has been added for hanging or it could be used as a throw. This has 8 hand quilted stitches per inch and is well quilted. 100% cotton fabrics !
  • Extra special work! Bargello quilts, inspired originally by a traditional needlepoint stitch, are popular as a contemporary design. Instead of embroidery stitches, simple rectangular blocks of colored fabric, which appear to gradually shift in size and placement, imitate the needlework pattern. Varying widths of pieced blocks from a 1/4 inch sliver to a sturdy 2 inch block produce a gradual wave, sloping and shifting from left to right. By selecting mutely colored fabrics, C Jean Horst shifted the colors gently. Cascading lines of fine quilting further enhance the image. Beautifully pieced and quilted with 8 stitches per inch and every row quilted. A masterpiece! The backing is a beautiful batik that matches the binding ages. A sleeve is added so that it could be hung as shown. 100% Cotton fabrics. A great size for a wall attraction.
