Incredible silk HAND PIECED log cabin barn rising quilt from the 1850s. The size is 62 square. There are 4,116 PIECES on the front of the quilt. Each block measures 4 1/2" and contains 21 very tiny 1/4" wide pieces. Each piece is hand sewn to the chintz backing material in different shades on the back.The quilt front is all silk and is in 99.99% excellent condition! I found two blocks where there is approx. A few of the pieces have a little fading. The quilt is basted and has never had a back or binding put on.
It is VERY RARE to find one this nice in this condition. Would make a DYNAMIC WALL DISPLAY! This quilt comes from an old collection and was probably never used. Will be listing another log cabin silk light and dark quilt from the same collection soon.Take a look at the other exceptional clean quilts in our store.
