Antique hand pieced light to
medium weight log cabin quilt was finished on the back with a beautiful French
green floral print that has absolutely stolen the show. Beautiful enough
to prompt a room-re-design.
Earthy green cotton floral print whole
cloth style back is
punctuated with delicious swirls of posies that repeat to form little frames for
pink and cranberry floral bouquets...oh.my.WORD! But then, there is the
rugged log cabin quilt on the actual business side...not being a quilter or one
who knows much about them, this one appears to be quite impressive with it's use
of light and dark fabrics to form a pattern within a pattern. Do I
sound like a novice? It's because I am, at least at
describing antique quilts! But I know that when my jaw hits the
floor, I'm on to something... :-)
Flaws on the log cabin side could be
repaired if you are good at that sort of thing. But none of the issues
pose a risk to the usefulness or integrity of the quilt. I love
this piece! Offered as found...clean and useful...one side is
perfect.....the other has a few issues, shown below. c.1880's - 1910.
