Episode 2501 Description and Preview
This quilt combines the eight-pointed Star, the Log Cabin, and Irish Chain and is set in a lightning strike design. Mary and Marianne talk about the use of classifying prints as “lights” or “darks” and how they interact in the finished quilt top. You will also learn the quick-piecing Flying Geese method.
Featured Quilt: Libby’s Log Cabin
This stunning throw quilt pattern combines two traditional quilt blocks: the Log Cabin quilt block and the Variable Star quilt block.
