Log Cabin pattern

Last night our quilt guild  guest speaker was Ronnie Elmore,  who specializes in Log Cabin and Courthouse Step Quilts.

Here is a little of his show.

Something he said was the Log Cabin pattern has been traced back to the Egyptian’s. The ancient Egyptians were buried with their pets and some of these pet mummies were wrapped in log cabin pattern. Never knew.

The first 4 quilts are antique quilt and the first one is dated to early 1800’s. These are all made with the Log Cabin or Courthouse Step patterns. Even the patterns that are round. I do think I need to rethink the Log Cabin.

He and his wife are quilters. His wife is a quilt appraiser.

Learning is fun isn’t it?
