Beautiful in design, the log cabin block symbolizes the log cabins built by pioneers and was made popular during the Civil War period. The color green represents the shady side of the cabin, yellows and oranges the sunny side.  The red center represents the heart of the cabin.

“O.P. Earle’s cafeteria floor also depicts the log cabin design with the use of the floor tiles. School staff, students and the Landrum Quilters have worked together for years on a variety of quilting projects that can be seen throughout the school,” said Jenny McGurk.

Now part of the Foothills Quilt trail this colorful 6×6 log cabin block hangs prominently over the outside door of the Principal’s Patio/Cafeteria visible to admiring traffic.
