Courthouse Steps Log Cabin Quilt: Circa 1880

This Courthouse Steps Log Cabin quilt is unusual because of the use of solid white blocks with the calico prints. The piano key border is a nice way to continue the strips of the Log Cabin while offering a variation in the pattern. The center of each Log Cabin consists of solid red and white blocks but their placement varies, another nice touch. They may appear rust color on some monitors but in reality, they are bright, clear red. Measures 74" x 84". Summer weight with no batting. Excellent, unwashed condition. Circa 1880; probably New England origin.
