Why We Chose The Log Cabin Quilt Pattern
The Log Cabin quilt pattern is one of the most popular quilt patterns used today and has been around for a long time. It is very well liked among the Amish community and is a “country looking” quilt. We are hoping the popularity of the Log Cabin quilt design help make viewing it a very enjoyable Quilt Garden Tour location.
The Log Cabin Quilt History
The Log Cabin quilt design is a popular design and easily recognized by many. It appears the design may have been invented in the United States about the time of the Civil War and gained popularity in the late 1800’s. Other similar quilt designs have been seen in an English quilt created prior to 1830. In addition, other designs that are the same or very similar to the Log Cabin quilt design have been found on ancient Egyptian mummies. At the time the quilt became popular in the United States pieces were tied together instead of stitched or sewn. Check out the following articles for more information on Log Cabin quilt designs.
