1870's Vintage Log Cabin Antique Quilt EARLY BROWN FABRICS & CENTENNIAL PRINTS! This HANDSOME cotton 1870's sunshine and shadows/light and dark log cabin quilt is hand pieced and hand quilted, with classic solid turkey red square centers. It measures a generous 80" X 92" and is in very good, washed condition, with some small age spotting (most visible on the back) and no wear. There is quilting around the piecework (visible on the back) at 7-8 stitches to the inch.
The back is white, the hand stitched binding is a double pink calico print, and the batting -- if any -- is very thin. There is a wonderful Centennial conversation print in one block featuring a patriotic eagle and a handshake. Many of the strip pieces are "fussy cut, " where the maker centered the fabric pattern -- usually a flower or stripe -- in the narrow rectangle piece. The GORGEOUS EARLY FABRICS and EYE CATCHING DESIGN make this 19th century COLLECTOR'S QUILT stand out!
