Log Cabin Star







Log Cabin Star is a jelly roll quilt that is 44" square. It is made with 1 jelly roll and 2 Fat Quarters. Fun and quick to do. The fabric line is called "The Hampton's" and is a very patriotic, nautical type of line. Also shown are 2 pictures of Project Linus quilts; "Life's Joys" and "Wildlife Babies." These will go to East Texas Project Linus sometime soon along with some others. These quilts are done in memory of one of the gals from the Quilting Passion forum who passed away very suddenly last week after a brief illness. I knew her personally since she was a fellow Texan and lived near here. She was also a member of our DFW Gang Guild (A group of people who have met from the Quilting Passion forum who live in this area). She was such a sweet person and we all miss her. Her name was Jan also, and we used to tease a lot about that! Doing these quilts helps us channel our grief into something that can help keep her memory alive and helps others. We have special labels that we are putting on the quilts that say they are in her memory. This would make her very happy, I'm sure!
