CONLF26 Log Cabin Barn Raising
85 x 88 (215.9 x 223.5 cm)
Such a pleasing use of color in this striking cotton Log Cabin quilt in the Barn Raising pattern. The terrific solid cheddar, black, green and muted Turkey red logs are set off beautifully by the various small patterned calico logs each with a white ground. All of the 7 ¼ x 7 ¾ inch blocks are made up of sixteen ¾ inch logs, all with Turkey red chimneys.
Hand quilting, which appears to have been done at a later time, is done throughout in a 2 ½ inch crosshatch pattern using black thread including the 4 ¼ inch wide solid black border. A striking red and black small scale floral on a yellow ground cotton is used for the backing with an applied ½ inch binding in Turkey red.
Very well planned and executed this is a very graphically appealing piece that would work equally well as wall art or on a bed. Professionally hand washed by Betsey – ask her for more information on this quilt.
