Choose Seasonal Colors or Any Color Theme!
Turn a traditional Log Cabin block into something special by sewing up a star for the center. Standard piecing and large strips make it doable for quilters of all skill levels.
The red, white, and blue color palette makes it perfect for summer and for patriotic holidays. Green, red, and white will be lovely for Christmas. Or go with any color combination you enjoy.
The oversized block can be finished off for a table topper or wall quilt. Sew three together for a runner, four for a larger table quilt, or make several blocks for a throw or bed-sized quilt.
We played in Photoshop a bit to see the block in other colors.
Instructions are provided by the designer, Mariesa Morgan from Ten Cow Quilts, for a 16″ finished block. Included is a bonus traditional Log Cabin pattern for 7″, 14″, and 21″ finished blocks.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. 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!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
