Q8853 Antique Mennonite Log Cabin Quilt - Streak of Lightningc.1880
77 x 88 (195.6 x 223.5 cm)
PA or OH
What a fabulous Mennonite quilt with absolutely stunning graphics! This cotton Log Cabin in the Streak of Lightning pattern shows a wonderful use of color and movement. The quilt maker chose a specific color palette and took great care with color placement so the graphics would grab and hold the viewer’s eye. All of the 1 3/4 inch center chimneys are a beautiful chrome yellow calico. The logs immediately surrounding the chimneys are done in consistent pairs of sweet calicoes: a dark blue, light blue with white calico and a red, pink with white calico.
Each block is approximately 7 1/4 inches square with all logs approximately 7/8 inch wide. The quilt is foundation pieced by hand and each log is outline quilted by hand on two sides. The cotton backing is strip pieced in lovely cotton prints. Please see the detail image. The applied 3/8” binding is a red, pink and white calico.
This wonderful and carefully designed quilt has been professionally hand washed by Betsey and is in crisp, apparently unused condition. Remember, we are happy to send this quilt to you on approval for private viewing in your home.
