  • Keep Calm and Sew a Mask

    Let’s make a difference! In response to the growing need for personal protective equipment (PPE), the CDC is now approving the use of home-sewn masks. When combined with face shields or filters, these masks can lengthen the life of protective equipment.* At Keepsake Quilting and Pineapple Fabrics, our caring staff is cutting kits and sewing masks for this great need.

We’re committed to doing our part and…

  • Past Meets Present: Let’s Make Log Cabin Quilts!

    The log cabin block is one of the oldest known quilt blocks, also known as the “housetop” block or seen in variations like the Courthouse Steps. It features a center square that symbolizes the “heart” and “hearth” of the home. This center square is traditionally red (sometimes yellow, which symbolizes a warm light in the window) and the block is built out from the center. As you add “logs” to the hearth center the block grows. Each log cabin block has a light and a dark side and the combinations are endless with their placement in a quilt.
