Choose One Fabric to Showcase the Stars Against the Scrappy Background!
You’ll love having this wonderful quilt to cozy up with to fend off winter’s chill. There’s just something about it that’s so warm and inviting!
The designer, Marianne Fons, used a combination of log cabin blocks and variable stars to create this beautiful homey quilt.
Give the log cabin blocks a scrappy look by mixing in a number of fabrics. Your scrap bag and fabric stash will be put to good use here. The more fabrics, the more interesting your quilt will be. Just be sure to maintain the light/dark value contrasts so the overall pattern stands out.
We love how this brown and red quilt has pieces of muted gold and turquoise fabrics to give it some zing. However, this pattern will be lovely in any combination of colors.

Make the stars stand out by making them all one color against a lighter background.
The finished quilt is 60″ x 75″.

It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
