This Mennonite Straight Furrows Log Cabin quilt is one of the most unusual I have seen. Elaborate embroidery creates a great counterpoint to the hard edges of the log cabin blocks and makes it "dressier" than most wool log cabins. The overlapping circles border is most unusual if not unique for this type of quilt. The solid color green tone is also out of the ordinary. The entire piece is made of wool. It is in pristine condition. Measurements are 72 inches square. Pennsylvania origin; Circa 1870's.
