Today's TQS Vintage puzzle is Row Houses by Flavin Glover and it is a cover girl. It graces the cover of A New Look at Log Cabin Quilts from C&T Publishing. It is also one of the twentieth century's best american quilts.
This quilt, created in 1985, was inspired by the "painted ladies" row houses in San Francisco. The whole design was created entirely from log cabin blocks. Flavin was aided by a picture postcard and suggestions from a paint store brochure. It was created from cotton fabric, machine pieced, and hand quilted.
Flavin has long been drawn to the log cabin block, she says, "Log Cabin quilts truly keep one connected to the taproot of American patchwork."
