Ketubah Description

View Ketubah Details

Quilt lore suggests that the center squares of Log Cabin quilts were usually red, to signify the heart and hearth of the home. These blocks are arranged to form the traditional “Chimneys and Cornerstones” design. The original of this Ketubah quilt design was assembled from handmade washi paper, an amazingly tough and resilient material used in Japan for clothing, household goods, toys and ritual objects.
