31 days of Antique Treasures - Day One of Blogging Challenge

Ringing in my 3rd year of participating in Cheryl Sleboda's 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge with this Liberty Bell. 1876 Centennial fabric (1776-1876) in a 1880 Log Cabin summer spread. Sandra Starley Quilt Collection.

The fabric is a pre-printed patchwork, also known as faux patchwork or cheater cloth.

 Here's more of it - see the shield

And there is more below: 2 strips with paisley print. There were a lot of faux patchwork fabrics printed in the 1880s.
