Flack Quilt Collection Auction

Those of you who follow the online auction world may have bid and won a few of these spectacular quilts from the folk art collection of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Flack.
They were auctioned in a 12-day event at Pook and Pook Auctioneers in Downingtown, Pennsylvania.
The Flacks displayed many of their quilts this year at the Mercer Museum in Pennsylvania.

 I have picked a few late 19th-century Pennsylvania quilts to show you.
No captions---they are just great Pennsylvania quilts
---late-19th century, possibly early 20th century.
 You can see the auction results here:
 There were 413 items, not all quilts but all impressive folk art.

I saw the exhibit in person last summer. It was fantastic. It was a wish-this-was-my-collection collection.

Fabulous. Especially the houses, and the log cabin. Thanks so much for sharing these!

I'm a sucker for Pennsylvania quilts - many thanks for showing these, Barbara. I went to college in the 70s just outside of Lancaster, PA, but wasn't into quilts at the time. If I'd only known then....

The schoolhouse quilt reminds me of some of the current (post-) "modern" quilts.

I just admire them and enjoy seeing them, lucky winners who bid on them.
