The small scale blocks of this Fence Rail Log Cabin Quilt are particularly impressive given the huge size of the quilt. It measures 93" x 110", probably the largest 1930's quilt I have seen. Well crafted; pristine, unwashed condition. A variety of printed and solid fabrics are beautifully blended to make the solid pink stand out like streaks of lightning.
