A refined and elegant version of one of the most dramatic and infrequently seen Log Cabin pieced quilt variations. In this precise example, elongated slender 'blades' read as a dynamic pattern that conveys great visual movement in its overall design. Pieced of fine wool challis in a harmonious palette that successfully contrasts the deeper browns with the lighter cocoa, cream, and beige tones. A modern visual in a fine quilt more than a century and a half old, amazing!
90" x 92" wool challis c. 1870s
