Did you know that the vastly popular quilt pattern known as Log Cabin should really be called
The PHARAOH'S PATH or
THE GARDEN OF THE PHARAOH??
In the British Museum there are mummified cats wrapped in bindings with the Log Cabin pattern. I was shocked to see that,
I had in the back of my mind a picture of several women in sun bonnets in the 1880s sitting and putting pictures (more or less)
of their poor log dwellings in fabric.
