Toronto Public Library Community Quilt

The log cabin class took place yesterday at the TPL, Spadina branch. Fourteen people signed up.

Wonky log cabin block (Crooked on purpose!)

I gave a short history of the block- the uncertain history; Did the design come from the farmer's fields in Scotland and England or the mummified cats from the discovery of Egyptian artifacts around the time Napoleon conquered that country. It seems that pattern was around before the pioneer's log cabin.

Log cabin quilts were found in Europe in the 1820's and much later in North America.

They sewed...

and talked...

and laughed.

...a nice relaxed get-together... just like quilting was meant to be.
