Block of the Month at Cheryl's



Today was BOM day at Cheryl's Quilts and this months block was a log cabin. The block instructions called for a white center, but of course I didn't follow the directions. I thought I had read somewhere that the center should be red, signifying the chimney, so that's what I did. Sharon made her center red also, so I didn't feel so bad.

Pretty. I had heard that the center could be red, gold, or even black....I usually prefer a red center.

I think the red center stands for the fire in the hearth at the center of the home. Black was for Underground Railroad stations. What would gold signify? Actually, I think any color works! Especially if it's YOUR quilt!
