So basic and yet it makes such a nice graphic statement. Plus red and white is always so classic. I think I want to make a reproduction of this one. I love everything about it.Here is a close-up of the quilting. Part of the quilt is quilted with this circle/orange peel pattern (which I LOVE) and part is quilted with a simple straight-line, cross hatch pattern. Makes me wonder if there were multiple quilters and why the two drastically different patterns. To be honest, I didn't even notice it until writing this post. Funny.
The final quilt is this amazing 19th Century Log Cabin quilt. It looked equally amazing from a distance as well as close-up.this site helped solidify my guess.)
This quilt felt very well-constructed, but fragile. The quilt was very light weight - it didn't feel like there was any batting. Not a lot of quilting either. It also had an interesting side with notches on two corners as if to go over pillows on a bed, so my guess is that it was made as a decorative bed-covering rather than for warmth or durability.
