Log Cabin Star - A Finished Mini Quilt

This one shouldn't count as a finish, but I checked back and it never did actually get its finished post, so... Here it goes!


This is a block from the Fat Quarter Stars quilt along that I did in 2011-12. I had grand plans for this quilt, most of which never came to fruition. Eventually I turned two blocks into pillows, and I made this block into a mini quilt. Except I never finished stitching the binding, and stuck it on my wall with a pin holding up the bottom binding. 

So when we moved, I set it aside while putting up my mini wall, and finally got around to stitching that last ten inches of binding yesterday. Mostly so I could have a finish post today. Stop judging me. All that matters is that it's done.

The fabric is Charlevoix by Minick and Simpson, which is of course long out of print. Luckily their newer line, Ann Arbor, is still available in places, and it's a pretty close match. 


The backing isn't exciting - just plain muslin pieced together. But it has pocketsssssssssss. Quilt hanger pockets so I don't have to jab it with pins. You know, besides the one that was in the binding for three years.

And since star blocks and log cabin blocks are among my favorite things, I'm glad this is now gracing my mini wall...properly finished. And maybe someday I'll finish the actual quilt!
