Log Cabin quilt pieced in the Courthouse Steps pattern. Strips of printed and plaid cotton fabrics in red, brown, and yellow are pieced so that the light and dark fabrics form diamond shapes. The blocks have square red centers. The backing is a printed fabric with designs of children at play in ecru, orange, brown, and blue. Each block was quilted separately. The quilt shows hand and machine stitching.
