Log Cabin: The Classic American Quilt Collection

Log Cabin: The Classic American Quilt

The romance of the Log Cabin lingers on some 125 years after American quilters first began piecing "logs" of fabric around a central square. While it's natural to assume that the first Log Cabin quilts originated on the American frontier, quilt historians cite traces of Log Cabin - type pieces found on Egyptian mummies and a very early English Log Cabin quilt that predates 1830. The quilts in this book represent the best of a long-standing tradition of Log Cabins. The project directions have been updated to take advantage of the best technology has to offer, like the sewing machine and rotary cutter.

Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement

Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail

The story of the American Quilt Trail, featuring the colorful patterns of quilt squares writ large on barns throughout North America, is the story of one of the fastest-growing grassroots public arts movements in the United States and Canada. In Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement Suzi Parron travels through twenty-nine states and two Canadian provinces to visit the people and places that have put this movement on America's tourist and folk art map.Through dozens of interviews with barn artists, committee members, and barn owners Parron documents a journey that began in 2001 with the founder of the movement, Donna Sue Groves. Groves's desire to honor her mother with a quilt square painted on their barn became a group effort that eventually grew into a county-wide project. Today, registered quilt squares form a long imaginary clothesline, appearing on more than three thousand barns scattered along one hundred driving trails.With more than fifty full-color photographs, Parron documents a movement that combines rural economic development with an American folk art phenomenon.

Join Eleanor Burns as she pays tribute to rural America's barns painted with quilt blocks. This fun tradition began in 2001 in Adams County, Ohio, where Donna Sue Groves painted a quilt block on the family's barn to honor her mother, an avid quilter. The local community joined in and soon painted quilt blocks on their barns. These barns have now become tourist's attractions with maps pinpointing each barn location. Learn a variety of new techniques as Eleanor demonstrates how to make the pieced barn blocks, each with a miniature quilt block pattern. Full color pictures of sample quilts will inspire and give guidance for fabric choices. The book includes patterns for twenty blocks ranging in size from three to eighteen inches. Bonus projects for one-block repeat patterns round out this fun Sampler quilt.
