I just noticed a copy of *Social Fabric* for about $65 from a dealer on abebooks.com. Also a copy of *Quiltmaking in America* for $70 from the same site. On amazon.com, believe it or not, one dealer offers the latter book for $9,999. I'm not kidding, but I assume this seller probably is.

Oh, and *Uncoverings 1988* for $60 on abebooks.

I have not received any of my daily QHL emails for some time now (not sure how long, as I was out of the country for a while).Is there a problem?

Thanks.

Here we go again.When was Log Cabin, Log Cabin.The pattern, as I read somewhere (can't remember where), dates to mid 1770's in Kent, England where it was commonly called Roof Eaves.There is a Log Cabin quiltcalled Log Cabin quilt made by a mother/daughter team from the years 1861 to 1864 that was a wedding quilt for the daughter.Unfortunately both mother and daughter died before the end of the Civil War.It is at the American Museum of Art in New York City.Kris, I have an unfinished Log Cabin made from silk ties that is kinda fun. It shows the traditional method of foundation piecing each block (as there is no fourth layer) and even has one block where the maker inadvertantly reversed the batting and the backing so that the batting is visible on this one pieceonly.If you would like it for your talk, I can lend it to you.Don't forget when you talk about Couthouse steps, that there is a variation called Garfield's Monument.best, Don________________________________From: Kris Driessen <krisdriessenyahoo.com>To: Quilt History List <qhllyris.quiltropolis.com>Sent: Thu, October 11, 2012 10:39:11 AMSubject: [qhl] Log Cabin QuiltsMy guess is that everyone is busy:-))But as long as you didn't ask, I would like to resurrect a conversation we had a while ago about log cabin quilts.I am teaching a class at the end of the month and thought I would bring as many examples as I could, but I have been struggling with semantics.Is a pineapple a log cabin?Is a pineapple made with a Sew Simple method apineapple log cabin? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DJ3bejYQ4Oaw=How about blocks made using a braided method http://www.maryquilts.com/half-log-cabin/=How about courthouse steps?http://bemused.typepad.com/photos/quilts/000_0804bb.html=Or the off-center log cabin that makes a circular design...or the log cabin that is colored everyother strips which makes a spiral design in the quilt http://quiltbug.com/images/patterns/cinnamon-swirl.jpg.Oh, gee, I could go on and on.=I know the log cabin block was (probably) named for Abe Lincoln but does anyone have any information on when the block first started beingseen under that name?=Kris---You are currently subscribedto qhl as: donbeldpacbell.net.To unsubscribe send a blank email to leave-qhl-1870667Wlyris.quiltropolis.com ---1506696528-1392738375-1349981377=:80350--

I thought Log Cabin was associated more with President Harrison because thelog cabin was a big part of his campaign. Wasn't he even called the log cabin candidate? Don't know where I saw this documented=2C but it has been inone of the political quilt papers at AQSG or perhaps in a book on political quilts. I had not heard about the mother/daughter team 1861-1864 ... good to know about. Whenever log cabin comes up I think of the cat wrapped with log cabin-looking design found in an Egyptian tomb.

Well, I don=92t think the sew simple pineapple is actually a pineapple block, but a square in a square block. It is pretty though. I am interested in seeing what others think of that.  Sherrie Wohlgemuth Missouri

Thanks, Don.I knew the pattern was old - I think I remember see an Egyptian mummified cat which was wound using a log cabin design.I did not know the old name.=I found a picture of Garfield's monument on the Quilt Index - how interesting!I would not have picked that out as a courthouse steps design.http://www.quiltindex.org/basicdisplay.php?kid=3D1F-3E-7=I would love to borrow a picture of your quilt, if you could e-mail me privately.It's just a class, but I like to throw in history whenever I can. We quilters think we are so smart, but I have found examplesof just about every modern technique in old quilts.Yours sounds like aquilt-as-you-go:-))=Kris --816651847-1309660337-1349987583=:57910--

there are three Garfield's Monument blocks--the LAC is called simply "the Monument".The one you pictured is from Ohio Farmer.The third oneis the one I was talking about.It looks exactly like Courthouse Steps except the middle square piece is broken into four triangle;=thus giving the pyramid look of Garfield's Monument.The Epytain Cat wrapping that I have seen is actually a Courthouse Steps look.Will sendyou my photograph of the back of my log cabin.The c. 1880 log cabins were done as quilt-as-you-go techniques.I would love to know when someone realized that four layers was too much work and dropped the foundation paper piecing.The1880 technique is why so many log cabins from this period appear to be tied as the fourth piece of fabric (the back)was just tied on to cover up the back of the other three.best, Don_
