Q9237 Folk Art Log Cabin Quilt

78 x 78 inches
Believed to be from New York

Everyone has favorites...well, this is one of mine...and no surprise that I am an early fabric textile junkie...Here we have a folk art Log Cabin Quilt executed in very expensive early wool challis and other very, very fine wool fabrics. To me this is an oxymoron as affluent families usually created sophisticated quilts, not folk art. There are dozens of different fabric patterns, including early block prints, plaids, stripes, solids and calicoes. huge variety of colors...
It is pieced from strips (called logs) mostly measuring 5/8" in width to create 5" wide blocks. These blocks are foundation pieced. All work is executed by hand as this quilt was made before the public use of the sewing machine. Finishing the quilt is an applied 5/8 " wide plaid fine wool binding.
I am showing you the quilt on one of my beds as my lighting does not seem to work with these fabrics ...another reason to be sent on approval for viewing in your home.
An amazing piece of art for your wall or your bed.
Please call for more information.
