    It looks like a log cabin with a star center... Is that what a variable star is?

    Variable star is a plain square with 4 flying geese around it.

    Nice quilt! I really like the layout. That would make an awsome QOV

    But yes I have heard that star block referred to as Variable Star and Saw Tooth Star. Turn it on point and it becomes an Ohio Star.

    Well I am going to try and make this quilt. I cannot take credit for it. I saw it at a local quilt show a couple of months ago.

    Star patterns like that can have several different names. Look up the pattern at quilter'scache.com and you will find it, I'm sure. Rail fence is the name of the stripes.
