Description Log cabin quilt of solid and printed cottons, machine pieced. Sixteen log cabin blocks (approx. 15" square) set straight, in 4x4 configuration.

Print fabric in center of block, with pink and off-white "logs". Off-white border with mitered corners, varies 4 3/4" to 5 3/4". Printed fabric is floral; pink and teal flowers, mustard stem and leaves, set on mosaic-like background of brown squares. Logs were sewn onto a white cotton foundation (visible through separating seam in backing).

No batting visible through seam separation in backing which is pieced off-white cotton. The foundation fabric serves as a batting substitute. Backing brought to front creates 1/4" binding.

Moderate amount of hand quilting; follows log piecing. Double parallel lines on border.
