Antique Quilts

Last week, our family buzzed down to St.George, Utah to enjoy some warmth as we celebrated the end of the school year.  While there, we toured the Brigham Young Winter Home, that was built and occupied in the late 1870s

These two quilts caught my eye.
The first in obviously a traditional log cabin.

Anyone know what this red and white pattern is called?

Here's a close up.  I'm pretty sure the red and white triangles are pieced.  And check out the beautiful quilting.
