Grace shows Dr. Jordan her patchwork square and explains the log cabin represents the home, while "the center is always red, for the hearth." It is traditional to have the center of log cabin blocks red for the hearth or the heart, but it is not required, as seen in the next flashback a few seconds later when Grace and Mary are airing out the quilts of the Parkinson household. The quilt seen on the right of the screen is a log cabin pattern, made with dark/light patches like Grace's, without the red centers.
