Default Past Perfect pattern

I saw a picture on Pinterest of a quilt called Past Perfect by Judy Martin. Barbara Bachman said the pattern is from approximately 1983. I have several of Judy Martin's books, but unfortunately, that pattern is not in any of my books. Does anyone know what the title of the book is that contains that pattern?
I tried to Google it; the picture of the pattern cones up, but not the title of the book. I tried amazon, but it comes up with some of the same books I already have. If I can find the right book, I can order it.
Thanks for any help to point me in the right direction.

When I search it, it says it is from this book. But from the pictures, I don't see what quilts are included. Book

Looks like the original pattern is called Colorado Log Cabin, see the description under the pattern.
“Past Perfect” appears to be a heading for a blog post that talks about Judy Martin and not the actual name of the pattern you seek. Hope it helps.

I have the "Scrap Quilts" book by Judy Martin and it does have the
'Colorado Log Cabin' pattern which Tallchick referred above.

Thank you so much for your responses. Now I have more avenues to try to locate it. I knew someone on AN would know the answer!

As soon as I saw the book, I recognized the cover. Went back and looked again, and sure enough, already have the book, so now I have the pattern! I spent my time looking for Past Perfect, when I should have been looking for the real name. Thank you all for your help. Now I'm off to look in my fabric store

That's a gorgeous pattern! So glad you have the book. I do too. I cleaned out tons of quilt books but kept Judy's. She's awesome.

Hah! I started cutting out my Colorado Log Cabin and what did I find? A duplicate copy of the Judy Martin book Scrap Quilts! So now I have 2. Must have really liked that book, lol. I went through my quilt books, and found 4 other sets of duplicates, so I will donate all the duplicates to the local library, and hope that someone else finds patterns that he/she/they might be looking for.

DonIsewman makes lots of Judy Martin patterns. Perhaps he might know?

Is that the log cabin with 8 pointed stars as cornerstones?
