  Fence Rail Log Cabin Quilt: Circa 1930; Pa.   $2,250

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. The pink tone is slightly dustier in color than shows on my monitor.This beautiful quilt would fit amply on a king size bed.
