We specialize in Light in the Valley Copyrighted & Log Cabin Barn Raising Variation patterns
Our signature quilt…This beautiful three dimensional design was first created in the 1990′s by an Amish woman and is copyrighted. Sorry, no patterns are sold!
No one knows why this earliest diamond-shaped variation of the classic Log Cabin is called “Barn Raising.” But isn’t it beautiful?
…but we also have these patterns currently in the store…
Autumn Splendor is another newer pattern that takes geometric block-type shapes and appliqués them onto a background for a leafy effect.
It is unknown whether the original Bargello needlework that inspired this pattern originates from Italy or Hungary…but either way, it’s sophistication…by way of the 1700′s
Basket block patterns have been with us from the beginning of the 19th century. These block patterns can be rotated in an unending variation of patterns.
A Broken Star is created by taking the classic Lone Star and placing it centrally inside of a angular set of similar diamond shape blocks.
There are countless variations of the original Lone Star. This one is of a Broken Star that features appliquéd tulips.
A hybrid of two classic patterns: Log Cabin and the Lancaster County-originated Dahlia. The regular Dahlia is known by its eight-pointed star with tufts of a contrasting fabric, forming the flower’s “petals”.
First introduced around the 1890′s, the Double Wedding is as popular today! Great as a wedding gift…or for yourself.
First seen in the 1880′s, this pattern was known by many names, but was quickly adopted by The Women’s Christian Temperance Union and became the Drunkard’s Path. It is also the very first quilt design to be used as a fundraiser!
Another version of the Lone Star, this time in the form of a Broken Star with the frame of the Spinning Star.
Hearts All Around is a variation of the Ocean Wave pattern. First, it takes a basic Ocean Wave and forms it into concentric diamond-shaped waves. Then hearts are appliquéd into one of the waves, with four hearts almost forming a clover-like center medallion.
The Nine Patch block pattern was first introduced right around the year 1800. Somewhere along the line, appliquéd hearts started to be pieced in, creating a much beloved design.
Heirloom quilts are typically white or cream, and are valued for their design, quality of quilting, and white-on-white coloring.
More Mariner’s Compass than block- or crazy-style Kaleidoscope in design, we still call this quilt what it is…absolutely beautiful.
Once again, the classic Log Cabin pattern of using rectangular strips at right angles to form a pancel, this variation incorporates a star design. Spectacular!
One of the classics! First known in England as the “Mathematical Star,” this eight pointed star is known to be in use as early as 1815.
Also known as Rocky Mountain or even by Crown of Thorns, this quilt design is extremely rare in Pennsylvania and is known to have come into existence in the 1850′s. Strikingly beautiful!
The name “Ocean Waves” first referred to a block pattern, in use by 1875. We don’t know when this undulating, curvy pattern first came into being, but there’s no denying that they are very popular in Lancaster County!
This name is self-explanatory- normally the pieces put together are not larger than a postage stamp. Often made out of scraps, these quilts first became popular in the late 1800′s to early 1900′s.
This more contemporary pattern is an illusion of eight square blocks, creating an eight point star by “spinning”…
Another hybrid design of two classics- the Lone Star (also known as the Star of Bethlehem) and the Irish Chain, one of the oldest block style designs. Whether the Irish Chain is of American or Irish origin is debated.
Another hybrid of two classics- the eight pointed Star and the Nine Patch.
The quilt designer’s limits for creativity are boundless, as demonstrated in this additional hybrid between the classic eight point Star and the “Trip Around the World” design.
This pattern of concentric lines of brightly colored squares is most closely identified with the Old Order Amish settlement in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
