MUSEUM QUALITY Vintage 1870's Wool Challis Log Cabin Antique Quilt TINY PIECES
MUSEUM QUALITY Vintage 1870's Wool Challis Log Cabin Antique Quilt TINY PIECES! This MAGNIFICENT wool (the front) and cotton (back) 1870's (some fabrics are earlier) sunshine and shadows/light and dark log cabin quilt is hand pieced and hand quilted, with thousands of tiny log cabin strips measuring approximately 1/4 per side. Each block has a mind boggling 41 pieces (the typical log cabin has about half that) and there is a piano key border on two sides. The quilt measures 64" X 72" and is in excellent condition, with a couple of pieces with 2-3 tiny moth nibbles (hard to find) and no wear. The quilt feels strong and sturdy overall, with vibrant colors. There is occasional straight line quilting in places at 5-6 stitches to the inch, visible on the back only. The back is wonderful 1870's seaweed print, the hand stitched binding is a brown wool suiting fabric, and the batting, if any, is very thin. The VIBRANT EARLY WOOLS, TINY PIECES, and DYNAMIC DESIGN make this 19th century COLLECTOR'S QUILT stand out -- BEST OF KIND!
