Hand pieced and quilted this all original doll quilt has an approximately one inch wide cheater cloth border making it extra special. Log cabin blocks measure 6 x 6 with logs varying in width from 1/2" to 7/8". The hand quilting and possibly the piecing of the blocks look to be done by little hands. The chimneys have one large 'X' hand stitched from corner to corner, and the logs and cheater cloth border all have a center line stitched in white thread in slightly uneven, irregular quilting stitches. There is one very early seam mend in black thread visible on the front which we have not touched. The 3/8" solid green binding was applied half by treadle machine and then stitched down by hand on the back side. A very nice medium weight solid deep blue cotton was used for the backing - see detail pics. This little treasure showcases a nice variety of 1920's fabrics in a multicolored palette within a great cheater cloth border. A very happy little quilt.
