“Traditional quilts were made with odds and ends of fabric that were cut and pieced together. One of the best-known block designs is the Log Cabin. It is composed of a center square with tiers of rectangular logs built around it, a structure that lends itself to rhythmic, easy knitting with beautiful results.”  Photo credit: Kellie Nuss Photography
