Log Cabin Quilts

Log cabin quilts have been around for centuries. They are simply formed by sewing strips around a centre square of fabric.

Traditionally the centre square is red, representing the fire that generates the warmth in a log cabin, and opposing sides of the block are dark and light.

Finished blocks can be assembled in infinite ways to create different overall patterns, but the log cabin will always be identifiable.

For our take on a traditional log cabin quilt we used red hearts to represent the 'fire', and positioned the blocks in a staircase formation to create light and dark diagonal stripes of colour. It's modern yet still classical, and as with all of our quilts is a one-off.
