A bright and cheerful bunch of (34) unused 19thc LOG CABIN quilt blocks that measure a large 14.5” x 14.5”….this is an unfinished project that has been sitting in storage for 100 years!
I purchased these blocks during 2001 from Springfield – Ohio: USA.
These are large gaily coloured Log Cabin blocks that were foundation pieced by hand onto a variety of different calico backing fabrics……including many madder browns from the 1860-80s era.
The logs are cut from a gorgeous variety of tartans and plains……an absolute riot of colour!
The maker has been very methodical in her use of colour which gives the prospective quilt top a very unified pattern overall.
This is an unfinished project….it appears that the original maker had left the outer corners free until she had completed all her blocks and would then make her final fabric decision then: however someone in later years has started to add a red chenille type fabric and blue silk fabric to about a third of the blocks….personally I would remove those and use a unified pop of colour to tie it all together.
There are enough blocks here to finish this project….you could either piece two more blocks and your finished top would measure approx. 84” x 84” without additional borders….if you were to use what’s here it would measure approx. 70” x 84” with 4 blocks left over for cushions!
It would be so rewarding to finish a project that was started well over 100 years ago!
I noted a few minor age stains and areas with some moth holes here and there….all the seams are tight; the fabrics are in otherwise good condition. No odours are evident.
If you have any questions re these blocks then please message me before bidding and I will do my be best to answer them.

This item comes from a non-smoking household with no pets coming into contact with the quilts.
