Museum Work Day

Museum committee continues with the quilt project.  This log cabin top was a wonder to peruse.  There were so many types of fabrics from satin, corduroy, velvet, shirting, suiting, etc.  The planning that went into it was quite remarkable.

Here's a close up so that you can see some of the fabrics and the layout.  All the little red squares are the hearths in the middle of the log cabins.  It is done on foundation muslins of all different shades and thread counts.  Very interesting to get to see the back and how the work was done.

 We were able to get the quilt shown below documented and into the computer.  Next visit with be the cleaning and the preparation for rolling.  The squares are made up of a white muslin middle with a signature embroidered on it and the four corners are appliqued arrow type heads.  When it is put together with other blocks, you get a second design.  If you know what the name of this pattern is, please let one of the ladies on the museum committee know so that we can mention it in the documentation.
When you get a close up of this quilt, it is amazing what this group of ladies accomplished, especially when you look at where it was put together and where the design elements met.
