Social Media Share Tools
- This child’s quilt in the “Log Cabin” style was in the George Wike family, possibly belonging to “Great-Aunt Lettie,” but the donor was not certain. The Wike family moved from the Cumberland County area of Pennsylvania, to Pike County, Illinois, in the mid-19th century where they established a woolen mill.
- Cotton and wool 3/8-inch strips were sewn on cotton foundation blocks. The quilt was lined, but has no filling. It is tied with wool in the center of each block and bound with a 7/8-inch wool twill tape.
