Antique Log Cabin Quilt

Such a fun, bright, and happy quilt! Log Cabin quilt top. Circa 1875. Likely Pennsylvania. Starley Quilt Collection.

Auction listing: "This Courthouse Steps Log Cabin quilt top is one of the most dazzlingly vibrant you could wish for. The rich palette is dominated by ruddy, rusty tones of oxblood red and copper-toned madder browns, but fresh pops of green and tropical blue keep the heavily brick-toned composition from ever feeling too staid, and consistent use of raspberry-toned double-pinks and vibrant chromes yellows keeps the composition feeling lively and festive."
