Mennonite Barnraising Log Cabin Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania

With close examination, one can see that the corners are actually log cabin blocks done entirely in black. The border is quilted with a cable pattern. Pennsylvania Mennonite origin; made circa 1880. Both front and back are wool.... Click for details
