ANTIQUE 70 X 80 HANDMADE C 1875 LOG CABIN QUILT. This quilt is predominantly brown, pink and cream cotton with prints and solids of the period. There are many madder prints. This quilt uses many fabrics from the third quarter of the 19th century. There are many madder prints and there is a great variety of early shirting prints.

The quilter occasionally uses pink and blue fabrics on both sides of the blocks, giving the lively appearance of squares set in diagonals. There are two areas with dark value greens. The choice of white centers in the blocks is unusual. IT IS AN EXCELLENT FABRIC STUDY QUILT AND IS IN COLLECTIBLE CONDITION. There is dense hand quilting in diagonal lines approximately 1/2 apart.

Brown thread is used on the darker block halves, and white thread on the lighter halves. Note picture of the back of the quilt. Construction is very good and the seams are tight.

Three of the brown fabrics show some shattering, but the quilt is very scrappy and these fabrics do not predominant. There is very light fraying on the binding, appropriate with the age of the quilt.
