This traditional log cabin quilt was owned by a well-known portrait painter – Mr Hill of Harrow. It was made in the late 19th century, and donated to The Quilt Association in 2002.
The quilt measures 2275 x 2050mm, and is a log cabin patchwork made with plain weave printed cotton fabrics of various weights. Some of the fabrics are from the early 19th century, whilst others are later. The red squares in the middle of the blocks are of twill weave cotton. It has been hand quilted in a white cotton thread.
In 2004 the quilt featured in “Celebrating Ten,” The Quilt Association’s 10th anniversary summer show.
