After going through my grandmother's scrapbook, I went through my mom's. It's amazing how many similar patterns she and I would clip for our scrapbook. Mom loved log cabins (me too..even those you live in). She also loved stars, so this pattern was one of her favorites. It was from Grannie's copy of Quilters Newsletter Magazine, July/August 2005 issue.
The technique uses lots of rotary cutting methods and some tiny (1 inch) pieces. The finished block is 12 inches. The chart tags each piece with a code. Based on that code, you cut the pieces out. The center of the "log cabin" is a sawtooth star. It helped me to cut out all the pieces and lay them out for placement at the sewing machine. This pattern would be a great way to use up some scraps. I do wish I had used a more solid burgundy for my second star.
I like the way my mom signed it, with her true signature. The quilt was made in 1999 and presented to Grannie as a gift on Christmas Eve.
