Very finely made Barnraising on Square Log Cabin Quilt. It is made of light wools with each log just 1/4" wide. The perfect use of lights and darks gives this quilt tremendous dimensionality. It was made in Pennsylvania in the 1870's but is as strikingly contemporary looking as though it was made today. The front is in excellent condition but there is weakness to the backing material. Measurements are 77" square. Pennsylvania origin.
This is a completely reversible Mennonite Joseph's Coat pattern from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. On one side, the bars are
2 1/4" in width; on the reverse, they are
5 1'2". Pristine condition; chevron pattern quilting. Circa 1890; measures 85" x 90".
This is an unusual pattern done with a wonderful variety of 1880's calico fabrics. Thumbnails show many of them clearly including several of cheater's cloth. The light spot on the upper left border of the overall image is on the photo only; it is not a spot on the quilt.It is in unwashed condition. Backing is muslin. The size; pattern and variety of fabrics would make this a wonderful wall hanging. It measures 66" x 72". Pennsylvania origin.
