The Patch Magic Peasant Log Cabin Quilt is really quite cleverly done. The pattern incorporates the classic light one side and dark on the other side log cabin quilts panels.
The panels are arranged in such a way that they form a geometric zigzag pattern. Bordering the zigzags are little diamonds on white, and the outside border is a complementary forest green.
Log cabin quilts like this one were a way for lonely women living on the prairie to express themselves creatively, while making practical items for their families.
Many log cabin quilt designs were used over and over by these industrious ladies.
