I don't technically live in a log cabin, but I did recently move to a home that has a fireplace...so yeah. I pretty much live in a log cabin. Which is AMAZING for my quilt street cred cause the Log Cabin quilt block is one of the most well-known and popular of all patchwork patterns!
“Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven,
Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie
Oh Henry. You get me. And when I make star quilt blocks, I think I might get you too.
The Flying Geese quilt block is simple, versatile and quick to make. Flying Geese can stand alone as a single block or can be used to make many other famous quilt blocks – the Sawtooth Star being one of them.
Through my research on the history of this block I came across very few facts.
