Handmade Amish Quilts Collection
This attractive adaptation of the Log Cabin pattern is much loved by Amish quilters. It includes vibrant blue stars that are placed around a log cabin diamond shaped layout. The stars are made from the same fabrics as the log cabin squares—a mixture of blues, gold and cream — including a contemporary paisley print. The quilt includes three borders in fabrics used throughout the quilt and a printed back fabric with neutral colors. The quilting on this Amish quilt is superb with about 7 stitches per inch. Most of the quilting mimics the log cabin design. This Stars in Log Cabin Amish Quilt is a truly unique Amish handmade patchwork quilt!
The Log Cabin pattern has thrived among Amish quilters. Traditionally, the Log Cabin quilt was a scrap quilt because the small log-shaped pieces in varying lengths make it possible to use many scraps. Now, the scrap quilt has given way to well planned quilts with a color scheme and fabrics purchased specifically for the quilt in mind. The overall effect of the Log Cabin quilt is determined by the arrangement of the different colored fabrics. There are numerous ways that the Log Cabin quilt can be put together and many variations on the original are now in existence.
