Friendship Star Log Cabins

The vivid red points jump off the quilt while the muted gold points recede to form a single Friendship Star. A four-in-one print from the Happy Campers collection by American Jane for Moda Fabrics provided a fussy-cut middle border featuring the ABCs.

Assemble Quilt Center

1. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram for placement, lay out all blocks and setting triangles in diagonal rows, rotating blocks as shown.

2. Sew together pieces in each diagonal row. (Where each setting triangle joins a Log Cabin block, match up a straight edge of the setting triangle with the block; in this quilt, the point of the setting triangle does not extend beyond the edge of the block.) Press seams in one direction, alternating direction with each row.

3. Join rows to complete quilt center. Press all seams toward bottom right-hand corner. Trim points of Log Cabin blocks that extend beyond edges of setting triangles. The quilt center should be 22-1/4" square including seam allowances.
