Straight Furrows Log Cabin Quilt: Circa 1870; PA

Straight Furrows Log Cabin quilt with rich jewel tones. It is primarily made of fine wool challis with an occasional strip of silk. The back is also light weight wool. The centers are done in a way not usually seen. The fact that they are divided into triangles works especially well as it continues the diagonal theme of the Straight Furrows.
The lower left corner has a variation in the placement of one block. Some would say this is a demonstration of humility in that only God is perfect. There is actually no evidence to support this but it is a popular piece of quilt lore. I prefer to think it was a natural mistake and that to err is human.
Measurements are 76" x 86". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1870's.
