Pieced Square-in-a-Square Quilt
Description: Maria Black pieced this quilt of log cabin courthouse step blocks in rows of 7 x 9. The blocks are made of strips of lightweight wool, cotton, and silk fabric laid on a foundation. The fabrics are solids, plaids and prints in reds, greens, browns, blacks, pinks, and purples. The light strips are at the top and bottom of each block with the darks on both sides. Most of the blocks' centers are solid pieces of fabric in different colors but a few are made with quarter-square triangle blocks. Little red wool felt four-petal flowers are tacked with pink wool at the blocks' intersections. The back is pieced with various brown calicos. The applied binding is gold plaid cotton. The quilt has cotton batting. The quilt is constructed in the quilt-as-you-go method. It is 209cm x 211cm (82 x 83 inches). View on Ohio Memory.
