Long Beach Quilt Show: Log Cabins

I’m just sneaking in a little slide show here before I finish up the Long Beach quilt posting.  This collection of quilts belongs to Claire McKarns, who has been “collecting, buying and seeling antique quilts for 30 years.”  Most of the makers are unknown, but they date from the late 1800s on up into this century.  A special note to one of my favorites (shown below, but above the slide show).

I especially like that modern touch of high voltage cables and plugs decorating the bottom border of the quilt.  Enjoy the slide show.

Some information on the names and the patterns are found *here* and *here* (you can also search the web for more).
