Log Cabin Quilt with Provenance attached -- SOLD(Item: Q-666)
This unwashed Log Cabin antique quilt is more of a time period quilt , as the top looks to have been made around the turn of the century, 1900-1910 and then the note attached said the top was quilted in the winter of 1936 and 1937,, The note that is attached reads" This quilt was pieced by Grandmother Bowman before Robert T Bowman was 1 year old. Quilted by his mother Mrs Emory T. Bowman winter of 1936 and 1937. For Robert T Bowman." It is hand quilted at a nice 8-9 spi. It has never been washed and is in excellent condition, but there are some storage spots on the border as shown. Wonderful to see the use of turn of the century fabrics and then to see the 1930's backing , that is relative to the note attached. For the binding the front is turned to the back and hand stitched down. A quilt one might want to research the family background. I acquired this in Texas, but it may have traveled there.
