Maple leaf log cabin quilt.


Maple Leaf Log Cabin is one of the first quilts she created and released the pattern for. The block combination sets it in a barn-raising setting to create a beautiful contrast that keeps your eye traveling around the quilt.

Scraps of orange, maroon, purple, and teals for the fall leaves and browns and greens for the log cabin strips. That way, the leaves appear as they fall all around the quilt.

During the Civil War, log cabin quilts first appeared in print. County fairs divided their competitions into categories for log cabins, a late 19th-century fashion in which rectangular “logs” framed squared “logs.”
