Downloadable Star and Log Cabin Quilt Patterns

Whether you're just starting to quilt or have been at it for while, your desire to make stunning log cabin and star quilts is shared by me.

I am excited to help you discover star and log cabin quilts by sourcing and creating downloadable star and log cabin quilt block patterns that use a variety of quilting techniques.

How to Quilt

Beginners may think that star quilt patterns are difficult to make. Not so. Most star blocks are easy. Take them apart to see, or make them big!

A lot of star quilt blocks are made up of simple shapes like squares, rectangles and triangles. These are put together in easy to make quilt block units called flying geese, hourglass blocks, half square triangles, quarter square triangles and the like.

You learn how to quilt by learning to quilt the parts that make up blocks.

If your quilting experience hasn't been fun, help is here. We'll quilt the stars, and the units that they're made of, together!

Check out the quilting party if...

  • You like to play with fabric and need new ideas for a quilt.
  • You want to quilt in your spare time 'cause you're always short on time for whatever reason.
  • You have a ton of precuts just itching to be made into a quilt, but you haven't got a clue about which quilt pattern they would look good in. Hint: a star quilt pattern.

A Few Easy Star Quilt Blocks

Galaxy Star Quilt Block

This beauty is made up of made up of simple squares and triangles. That's it! This star is based on a nine patch grid and has eight uneven points - four short and four long. To get consistent points use tri-recs triangle tools to make the galaxy star quilt block.

Ohio Star Quilt Block

Talk about being popular and prolific...the Ohio star is a traditional quilt block with so many variations, 100s maybe. It's a 9-patch grid star made of hourglass units and simple squares. A red and white fabric combination make it a true classic. Try the Ohio star quilt block pattern.

Sawtooth Star Quilt Block

Lots of star quilt patterns use the sawtooth star in their designs. Why? Probably because it uses easy to make flying geese units. And, the center square leaves room for lots of design possibilities. Add another star or quilt a cool motif. Get instructions to make it a 12-inch sawtooth star quilt block.
