Log Cabin Quilt(Item: Q-849)
Offering this fabulous Log Cabin Quilt from the 1880's that is in excellent condition. Taking a look at the great number of fabrics in this quilt one can only imagine all the time it took to piece and make this quilt. The quilting is around the block and more or less in the ditch, so not easily seen from the front , but more so on the back. Small narrow width logs make up this beauty. Just seeing all the shirting fabrics used in this quilt and wondering if they were left overs after making clothes. Also several conversation prints were used in this quilt. This is a great design, a light-dark log cabin, courthouse steps. From Little Compton, Rhode Island estate as I was told.
