Rarely does one see a crib quilt made of silk since it is clearly too fragile for a child to use. This Log Cabin may have been made as a presentation piece or perhaps a table cover. It would certainly be elegant hung on a wall. The lights and darks very effectively create the diagonal lines of the Straight Furrows Log Cabin variation. Three sides of the border are diagonal stripes with the top a solid band. The back is wool challis. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1870; excellent condition. Measureme ...click for details
