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.

  1. I love a good log cabin, and this one is all that a log cabin should be! Gorgeous. I always think the narrower logs make for a more graceful design and more visual interest. Love this!

  2. I love your log cabin star quilt! Your work amazes me. What I really admire is that your quilts are so diverse. Some quilters seem to quilt the same one over and over. Can’t wait to see what is next.

  3. Thanks! I love all kinds of different styles so I enjoy playing with lots of techniques, fabrics, and design concepts. Keeps things interesting for my short attention span!

  4. Absolutely beautiful – love the scrappy log cabins with the LV background and the secondary star design is just amazing!

  5. Hello, I am in a quilting class now and I am really interested in making this quilt. Is there a pattern for this quilt?

  6. Love the scrappy log cabin and mostly that it is small blocks. Is there a pattern available? I would like one as well. Thank You

  7. I think this quilt is beautiful!!! I also would love the pattern if it is available.

  8. Is there somewhere to purchase the pattern. If not you should make a pattern and sell it. I can’t be only one that loves this and wants to try one with the star pattern
