This is an extremely finely crafted example of one of America's most classic quilt patterns - Barnraising Log Cabin. It is as crisp as the day it was made in the 1880's. It has a wonderful and unusual border. Rather than the more traditional piano key in which all of the strips face the same direction, this divides in the middle of each side to create a V in the center. It is made of a well placed combination of solid and printed fabrics. Measurements are 82" square. Brownstown, Pennsylvania origin (Lancaster County).
