~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A classic late nineteenth century Log Cabin quilt that has lots of printed fabrics of that era, including some very special ones. Check the photos below to get a look.

One fabric features characters and scenes from H.M.S. Pinafore, the wonderful comic operetta by Gilbert and Sullivan, which premiered in 1878. Wildly popular in England, Pinafore also caught the imagination of American audiences. Thus, we soon thereafter see cottons printed with its images.

Another intriguing print shows cannons and American flags, and may well have been printed a few years earlier and celebrating the U.S. Centennial of 1876.

Like some other Log Cabins of the time, it was made "on foundation," which also acts as its back. No batting, so thin and lightweight.

Excellent Condition.
