This classic Straight Furrows Log Cabin quilt is made with a beautiful combination of light weight wools. The solid red and variety of blues are especially effective in creating the diagonal light and dark. Some of the small centers are made of more than one piece, giving a nice quirky touch. The quilt is in excellent condition. There are two tiny holes in one of the red logs but no other condition flaws. The backing is also a fine wool. Measurements are 70" square; Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin. Made circa 1870's.
