This fragment is from a quilt that is a mark of affluence, as wool challis was only for the wealthy. This piece of art can be hung in any direction. The method of piecing of the back indicates that the quilt was created in New England. One of the most unusual characteristics of this log cabin are the fuchsia center chimney squares.
