maverick log cabin


Unknown Quilt Maker
Collected in Pennsylvania
64 x 74 inches
Circa 1930

Based on Tradition ... and Then...
----> Going Her Own Way ---->

A wonderful example of how American quilt makers established traditions,
 and then tweaked, adjusted, and played with those traditions ~
 often, then, putting a very personal stamp on their quilts.

The basic Log Cabin design is evident here ~ the "bones" ~
brilliantly transformed into an
almost-abstract, definitely unique composition.

All Wools, except for the floral printed 1930s print on the back.

Tied rather than quilted ... and in Excellent Condition.

S/he hand embroidered all the seams in contrasting colors
 emphasizing the masterful composition.

Price:  $785
