The placement of color gives this Mennonite Log Cabin Quilt more than its basic Light and Dark pattern. The light grays form a diamond around the maroon corners. The flame red centers and inner border add bounce to the entire piece. The border is quilted with a chevrons pattern. It is made of medium weight wools with a cotton back. Circa 1890; Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 70" x 73"; excellent condition.
