Play With Color and Value for Your Own Unique Version!

A simple modification to Log Cabin blocks creates stars that sparkle across the surface of this beautiful quilt. Jelly roll strips make this a quick project that even beginning quilters can complete.

As with all Log Cabin quilts, the magic of this design comes from careful color and value placement. Many different looks can be achieved, depending on the values, colors and fabric styles.

The following quilt by Anja’s Quilts shows how beautiful this pattern is made up in rich Christmas colors.
