    Question Log Cabin Star Quilt Pattern

    I am looking for a log cabin quilt pattern. I want a pattern that uses log cabin blocks that make
    a star when put together. An Amish friend of mine asked me if I could find her this kind of pattern.
    I have looked online for a free pattern with no luck so far. Is there anyone out there that would like
    to share a pattern with me. I woud greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance if you could help my
    friend and I out.

    I just google searched Log Cabin Star Quilt Pattern and several came up but I didn't see any that were free. I like that pattern...I hadn't seen it before.

    Try: http://www.quilterscache.com or http://www.quiltmaker.com
    I saw free patterns on both.
    Good luck.

    I have a "Quilt in a Day" Star Log Cabin book, don't know if that's what you are looking for. It's by Eleanor Burns. It's log cabin blocks with a star in all of the blocks corners. PM me if you think that might be it

    I made the star log cabin by Eleanor Burns. It is not a free pattern but loved making it. Easy to do.
    Not a good picture, the colors are off. But you can see the pattern.

    Are you sure it's not just a matter of how you layout the blocks? Do either of these layouts work?

    Imreally want to see what you do eventually come up with.

    I am ot sure but I think it is Jan Krentz or whoever has her name on those diaqmond templates. I htink I got mine at Joanne's years ago.

    That is a start. Then there is a free site online where you can print out graph paper in various designs: squares, rectangles, triangles, diamonds .... etc.

    Print out whichever you want to play with and get out your crayons and enjoy our version of quilting kindergarten.

    Any questions you have I can't do more right now. Just got home from hospital and am on steroids and such - so it will take quite awhile to get at what I need or reference. That includes no quilting til maybe ??? next week. I can use my little notebook and design with my EQ6 and my QuiltCAD.

    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    Here's one that's free. The stars form in the corners when the blocks are put together.

    I also found a couple on the Country Threads site, but they cost $8 each.

    Hope this helps.

    I just typed in my search area, log cabin star quilt pattern and there is a free pattern that you can download. Actually all it is is the log cabin block and a picture of it put together in a star pattern.

    Try this book:

    the Classic American Quilt Collection: Log Cabin (Rodale Press, 1994). The pattern is called "Summer Night" on pages 68-75. It is paper pieced and is a star in a star. Outer star is "non-traditional" being that it has 16 points. It is not a compass block, but a star.

    If you have trouble finding the book, PM me and I will send you a copy of the pattern.

    Welcome from Canada. I googled Log Cabin Star & a link came up with a Log Cabin Star pattern that was in the March/April 2003 edition of Quiltmaker magazine. I am sure you would be able to get back issues so maybe you could try that if this the pattern you are looking for. A picture of the quilt is included on the site. Good luck with your search.

    I think you would like the Eleanor Burns Star Log Cabin pattern book. I chose denim looking blue prints for the Logs and rust for the stars (and still looking forward to getting it sewn). Best of luck in your choices.

    It's called a Spinning Star pattern. Interesting since I purchased the pattern at an Amish store in Shipshiwana Indiana.
    Good luck
