Log Cabin / Barn Raising
Unidentified Quilt Maker
60 x 72 inches
Found in California
Excellent Condition ~ Crisp
This early 20th century Log Cabin is unusual in a couple of ways. First, the color. Log Cabins are rarely done in so few colors, especially when one of them is white.
The hand quilting is also striking, in that it's done in a Clamshell or Fans design. Often Log Cabins are not quilted at all, but it's particularly rare to see one with this kind of quilting. It gives the quilt depth and texture.
And how about those little orange squares? I think the quilt maker's choice was just right ~ they add a pop and a smile to this deceptively simple quilt.
Measuring 60 x 72 inches and graphic, it's perfect for hanging.
