This is an Antique Patchwork Log Cabin Cotton Calico Collector Quilt Top Hand Stitched 79 x 71 MA Estate. This is a log cabin quilt top from a local Massachusetts estate. It does not have the outer backing fabric.
The whole top is hand stitched and includes some basting stitches. The blocks are approximately 8 1/2 - 9 inches square and consist of hundreds of different cotton calico fabrics including florals, checks, prints, paisley, shirting fabric and solids. There is no wear, staining, holes or disintegrated fabrics to the logs. The front is crisp and clean. The backing fabric that the logs are stitched to is cotton showing many areas of fabric color aging, staining and discoloration.
There are some pink calico squares with a few check squares. The aging did not affect the front log cabin side. The quilt may have been folded and stored with the backing to the outside.
All the varied and different fabrics are wonderful. This is a Collector quilt and would fit right into a quilt collection to be preserved as part of early American textile history.
