A few years ago my husband and I stopped in a quilt store in Berea, Kentucky. Hanging on the wall was a quilt that looked like a Lone Star at first glance but was actually made with diamond shaped log cabin blocks. I loved it but they didn't have a pattern for it, it was a consignment quilt. I got home and looked for a pattern and didn't find one. Well, a month or so ago I was telling this story at my quilting group and one of the others said that you just started with a 60 degree diamond...and then she sent me a copy of the instructions!! Making up the 6 blocks to make the star only took one day...fast and fun. It came out larger than I anticipated, but that was alright, instead of being a baby blanket I could make it for a twin bed...or maybe a double bed...hummmm. I put the blocks on the table to show my husband and his reaction was that it looked really good there.
So...here is my latest quilt...only it decided to be a table runner! I still think that there is a log cabin quilt in my future...and I am playing around with the idea of using all sorts of log cabin blocks and calling it "Home".
