You never know what you'll find here....

Julie Silber, one of today's most respected quilt authorities, and her partner, Jean Demeter, working together as The Quilt Complex, offer a wide range of antique and vintage quilts made between 1800 and 1950.

Our “Featured Quilt is either a newly found treasure or one we have decided to release for sale from our private collection. Check back often for the most recent additions.
McPherson Collection
Sandra McPherson is a California poet, professor, and publisher who has become a connoisseur of American quilts, with a special affinity for the gutsy, unpretentious, and personal. Many of Sandra's quilts are now in museum collections. The Quilt Complex is very pleased to offer more superb examples from her quilt collection.
