This Fence Rail Log Cabin quilt has an equally dominant secondary pattern. The use of color provides a diagonal design of Straight Furrows as well. The small-scale of the blocks makes for very intense patterning. Each block is about two inches to a side. The front of the quilt is primarily wool with an occasional strip of satin. The backing is cotton flannel. Adams County, Pennsylvania origin, circa late 1880s. Excellent condition.
