This jacket is made from an early 1900 Canadian Mennonite log cabin wool quilt. Handmade by a Mennonite woman in Ontario, Canada, named Esther Weaver. It is an assemblace of earth toned wool scraps. Made in the log cabin style with a center patch of red or blue, representing the hearth or fire.
In the nineteenth century, the Log Cabin quilt pattern was described as “Canadian patchwork,” evoking the colonial homestead.
