An Angel A Day, Quilts etc...
Welcomes you to your viewing of my latest quilt for auction.
This quilt is another of my creations that has it's start back in history. Many of our pioneers created log cabin quilts from the scraps they collected along their travels. In the beginning, the center of the individual blocks was either red for the fireplace in the home or yellow to represent the kitchen, often considered the heart of the home. In the days of slavery, the center of the quilt block was often a piece of black fabric. This let the slaves know that the owner was sympathetic to their plight. A home with a black center log cabin quilt hanging on their line meant that these folk were t to help.
This quilt has a red and black print in the center of each of the blocks. The rest of the block is done in the traditional dark and light sides. Most of the fabrics are Thimbleberries prints. I did add a couple Moda prints to complete this quilt. All the fabric is 100% quilt shop cottons. I chose to use heirloom cotton batting and of course, egyptian cotton threads. The applique added to the top and bottom of this quilt was hand cut and then stitched down with black thread using a blanket stitch. To each of the cabins I have added a gold star button.
This quilt measures approximately 43"l x 40"w. It would make a wonderful wall hanging or table piece.
This quilt will come to it's new home signed, dated and titled by this creator/seller.
