Seeing as it’s Log Cabin week on the cool cottons blog, we thought we’d share a bit of Log Cabin inspiration from the Quilt Index Archives. We’ve blogged about the Quilt Index before, but if you’re not yet familiar, QI is an incredible resource for all types of quilters. Through the Quilt Index, you can search for historical quilts by pattern, origin, color, era, and culture.
One of the amazing things about the basic Log Cabin block is just how different the finished quilt can look depending on the colors, contrast, and layout. Many more historical Log Cabin quilts after the jump.
You can find hundreds and hundreds of historical quilts through the Quilt Index. When you’re in need of inspiration, there’s nothing better than having lots of source images.
(And remember: commenting on the blog between now and March 31st means you’re automatically entered into the Modern Log Cabin Quilting book giveaway. Be sure to let us know what you think about this post!)
