Finished: Log Cabin Star

I am excited to share this finish!!  Each log is 3/4″ wide, and the finished quilt is 63″ square with 144 blocks. It was a “Leader-Ender” project as I worked on other things, until it was the only project I was able to work on over a retreat weekend because I forgot critical parts of every other project I took with me. I got about half of the blocks made that weekend so I just kept going until I had enough for the entire top. 


I quilted it simply with an all-over zinnia pattern that has become my favorite unobtrusive fill pattern, and pieced the back with some large pieces that were sitting near my cutting table. The binding is a Riley Blake diagonal print. 

No plans for this one other than to admire it and snuggle under it when the chill of air conditioning is too much this summer.
