Log Cabin Heart by Mary Syer and Susan Stachelczyx
This log cabin heart was a collaboration. Susan stachelczyx made the quilt top and Mary quilted and finished the wall hanging. We spotted it on auction at the 2014 Tucson (Arizona) Quiters Guild show. The crinkly pattern on the red fabric makes it look like a heart wrapped in cellophane.
If you click on the above photo to magnify it, you will see that eight off-center log cabin blocks and two plain squares of red fabric were used, along with two cream squares in the lower corners.
We discovered a wonderful FREE PATTERN for a log cabin heart quilt by TK Harrison. This one uses 12 log cabin blocks and has a row of pieced hearts on the top and bottom border.
