   Miniature Blocks: Silk and Silk Velvet Log Cabin Barn Raising

 

Description:
This silk velvet log cabin has a specific way to hang because the top of the quilt is without a border. I’m assuming they wanted that to be at the head of the bed. In mint condition, this exquisite quilt has a 4” golden silk velvet border that has been turned back to make a pillowcase edge. The piecing was done with 1/2" logs and a 1" center chimney. Completely pieced by hand, these diminutive pieces create an exquisite outcome. Created over 150 years ago, it is ironic that these are all today’s colors. The backing is 19th century dress lining. This extraordinary textile will make a perfect focal point for your living room or great room. Silk fabrics will pulsate when properly lit, almost taking on another dimension
