Q9092 "H" Block Log Cabin Quilt
65 x 76 inches
A very hard to find, mint condition, child's quilt. This c.1870 "H" block Log Cabin design is comprised of mint fabrics dating back to c.1840. Upon very close examination one can discern some very early treadle machine stitching along with the tiny hand stitching. The Apx. 10" blocks are comprised of 1" width "logs". The configuration of the colors have created the "H" block pattern...There is a tiny 1/4" applied off white binding finishing this stunning, calming and graphic quilt.
Created in Maine using a method indicative of New England....the way the individual blocks are joined on the back. Because this quilt was foundation pieced the sewer negated the need for quilting and as a result created a summer weight quilt. The colors that seem the most prominent are red, white and blues. There are dozens of different calicoes and prints. This perfectly executed quilt is a perfect wall art size for many homes.....or a great size to use as a summer "throw".
