| The Log Cabin Challenge
The Log Cabin is a well known block that has been used over and over
in American quilting. It is traditionally made with a red center then sides or "logs"
are added around the center. These were cut strips of light and dark scraps.
Since the small log cabins of early American history had one room with a fireplace
for cooking and heat. Life was lived in that room.
The red square represents the fireplace,
thus the red center then all the 'logs" were built around that square.
White Bluffs would like to invite you to our Log Cabin Challenge.
If you would like to participate you have until the
first week of August to put your rendition of the pattern together.
The finished piece will need to be no larger than 20" x 20" and needs to be finished.
Your piece can be made with any type of fiber,
be it cotton, polyester, wood, yarn, old carpet or even weeds
if you are so inclined. The patterns that are considered "log cabin" vary.
These can include the pineapple block, wonky, half and straight furrow.
Bring your finished quilt into the museum by August 10th.
We will hang all entries and ask that the public vote on their favorite.
There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners announced on October 19 during the Fiber Fest activities.
