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.

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=

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.

The foundations were fabric, not paper on any I've seen. there would be 3 layers...the piecing on top of the fabric foundation and then a backing.

I'm sorry, I misspoke--the log cabins were just the cloth foundation; but they also had batting between the foundation and the top, as well as the back panel that was usually tied--thus four layers.The one I have without its back is clearly top, batting, foundation back but no final back.The others I have seen from that late 1800's also follow this process.Thanks for the correction on the misspoke "paper" piecing--that is more the 1820-30 hexagon's often referred to as English paper piecing.________________________________

For those of you wondering about my statement on the Log Cabin quilt made during the Civil War, my source was Glorious American Quilts: The Quilt Collection of the American Museum of Folk Art, Warren and Eisenstat, 1996. page 63-65 and is the quilt made by Mary Jane Smith and her mother, Mary Smith made by them for Mary Jane's wedding to Gladfelter, who met them in New York, but then died (apparently that night) of pneumonia, the night before their wedding.Mary Jane died three years later just before the end of the war. I am missing one of the pages in this book about log cabins and it may be there that I saw the reference to Roof Eaves inEngland in the mid 1770's.best, Don Beld ---837175150-1533332734-1350083809=:12280--

Hi Don, I don't think there is 'superior' information out there - just lots of different information from lots of people - all of it enhancing our collective knowledge about the subject of quilts. The more I see and hear and learn, the more I realize how much I don't know. Any one of us, individually, can only have seen a small sampling of what's 'out there '....which is what makes these various lists that allow us to share our experiences so important in quilt study. j

Jumping off the merry-go-round (oooohhh, the comparisons that can be made with that!)

-- I have been enjoying some surprising moments of free time with less stress and thus can enjoy postings of artists on their blogs. You probably know Lyric Kinard from North Carolina (her web site is good, too).

The pleasure is being able to hop on and off their blogs yet enjoying the creativity they foster. It's like a fresh breeze to have new input. And much less stressful....

A lot of QHL mail just came through at once, so I am a bit behind on this. I hadn't actually heard Kent laying claim to the Log Cabin, but there is a suggestion that it was present in Scotland in the mid 1700s, and the Isle of Man lays claim to the 'Roof Tile' pattern, done entirely with folded strips, again around early 1800s.

Like most simple block patterns, it is the sort of thing that could arise pretty spontaneously anywhere, isn't it?

Kris -- We asked ourselves some of those same questions when we organized an exhibition some years ago entitled "Design Dynamics of Log Cabin Quilts." We considered Pineapple and Courthouse Steps to be variations. The gallery guide that we produced for that exhibition addresses those questions and is available on the International Quilt Study Center & Museum's website at www.quiltstudy.org (click on Exhibitions, then Online exhibitions). You may also take a tour of the virtual exhibition which is also online. Incidentally, "Design Dynamics" was curated by then graduate student Judy Schwender, who is now Curator/Registrar at the National Quilt Museum in Kentucky.

HI Kris...I think the Pineapple is definitely a Log Cabin design. In mybooks and classes I call it a Log Cabin gone beserk (!) It was not seen inthis country until several years after the Log Cabin were so popular (1869is the first documented LC according to Brackman) and it just stands toreason that some enterprising quiltmaker tried putting that extra roundoflogs on, diagonally, to create the new pattern. It is the first blockpieced on a foundation (fabric back then) that we were able to find too.And it makes sense that quilters would have figured out that they neededto stabilize those skinny strips of fabric of varying weights)I'vebeen making Log Cabins and Pineapples for 25+ years now, and DixieHaywood and I wrote the first US book on pineapples in 1989 (we arecurrently doing another one, due out Fall '13). In the process, I've donea fair amount of research and discovered it is NOT the intrinsicallyAmerican pattern (little house on the Prairie, sunshine and shadow, redhearth, etc) that we were told years ago. It's been found in the UK,particularly in the North, as early as the 1820's. The people on the Isleof Man consider it "theirs" and call it the Roof pattern, but there areearlier ones. It'salso==found in Canada. I did a short paper, which is onthe Women's History site (link is on my website, janehallquilts.com) whicheven though it a few years old, is still pretty accurate.Additionally, Janet Rae (Edinburgh) wrote the definitive history a fewyears back. Don't know if the book is still available, but she traced thepattern back to medieval land patterns, as well as to the cat mummieswhich emerged when King Tut's tomb was opened in the early 19th Century.She even ties it to Rail Fence, which makes sense when you think about it.My two cents worth...Dixie and I have been called the Pineapple Queens,which I kind of like!

style=3D"FONT-SIZE: 14pt">Marjorie Bradt Foote came to the Schenectady Museum in the early 1960's. At this time the museum had a collection of about 50 pieces. Through her passion and connection with Stella Blum, curator of The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute at the time, she soon became a recognized expert in the field and during her tenure until her death in 1979 grew the Schenectady Museum collection to over 3000 pieces. Many of the most important 20th Century designers and other items in the Schenectady collection came by way of her connection with the Metropolitan's Costume Institute.</SPAN></DIV> <DIV style=3D"TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=3Dcenter><SPAN

style=3D"FONT-SIZE: 14pt">The&nbsp;Schenectady Museum&nbsp;&amp;&nbsp;Suits-Bueche Planetarium,&nbsp;as it is currently known, has changed its focus to that of primarily a science and technology museum and has re-evaluated the entire costume collection, which has since grown to nearly 10,000 pieces. We are extremely fortunate to have been chosen to handle this deaccession and with this November's sale we continue with phase two of the deaccession. We also received a large one owner collection of couture and designer fashion and accessories from a prominent Washington DC estate. The

collection includes a large quantity of Yves Saint Laurent clothing. Both collections will continue into the spring sale as well.&nbsp;</SPAN></DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV style=3D"TEXT-ALIGN: center" align=3Dcenter><SPAN

thanks for sharing that Kris.great info.best, Don________________________________From: Kris Driessen <krisdriessenyahoo.com>To: Quilt History List <qhllyris.quiltropolis.com>Sent: Sat, October 13, 2012 8:21:21 AMSubject: [qhl] Re: Log Cabin Quilts - from Jane HallHI Kris...I think the Pineapple is definitely a Log Cabin design. Inmybooks and classes I call it a Log Cabin gone beserk (!) It was not seen inthis country until several years after the Log Cabin were so popular (1869is the first documented LC according to Brackman) and it just stands toreason that some enterprising quiltmaker tried putting that extra round oflogs on, diagonally, to create the new pattern. It is the first blockpieced on a foundation (fabric back then) that we were able to findtoo.And it makes sense that quilters would have figured out that they neededto stabilize those skinny strips of fabric of varying weights)I've been making Log Cabins and Pineapples for 25+ years now, and DixieHaywood and I wrote the first US book on pineapples in 1989 (we arecurrently doing another one, due out Fall '13). In the process, I've doneafair amount of research and discovered it is NOT the intrinsicallyAmerican pattern (little house on the Prairie, sunshine and shadow, redhearth, etc) that we were told years ago. It's been found in the UK,particularly in the North, as early as the 1820's. The people on the Isleof Man consider it "theirs" and call it the Roof pattern, but there areearlier ones. It's also==found in Canada. I did a short paper, which is onthe Women's History site (link is on my website, janehallquilts.com) whicheven though it a few years old, is still pretty accurate.Additionally, Janet Rae (Edinburgh) wrote the definitive history a fewyears back. Don't know if the book is still available, but she traced thepattern back tomedieval land patterns, as well as to the cat mummieswhich emerged whenKing Tut's tomb was opened in the early 19th Century.She even ties it to Rail Fence, which makes sense when you think about it.My two cents worth...Dixie and I have been called the Pineapple Queens,which I kind of like!
