What a find for antique fabric lovers! An incredible array of cotton fabrics from c.1870 - 1890 make this antique quilt extra special. This hand pieced quilt contains the structure and order you expect to see in a Log Cabin pattern coupled with positive energy from the exuberant Streak of Lightning formation of the Log Cabin blocks. The lightning pattern is surrounded on three sides by a wonderful 2 inch wide triangles border.
Turkey red chimneys 1 ½ inches square form the bright center of each approximately 5 ½ inch square cabin block. Logs are 5/8 to 3/4 inches wide with 12 logs making up each cabin. This summer weight quilt has no middle batting. Red wool top ties connect the quilt top to the olive brown backing fabric containing sage green and white floral sprays. See detail images. A 3/8 inch hand applied binding uses a variety of the fabrics seen in the top of the quilt forming a lovely finish to this unique Log Cabin.
A beautiful example of the Log Cabin Streak of Lightning pattern in excellent condition. This quilt is ready for use on your bed or would be equally as stunning as art for your wall.
