|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.|
