Stars at Bear Cabin – Done

I got this one done, just under the wire (my goal is to finish them up by Friday).

This one is huge, 86″ unfinished square – the pattern is originally 75×85 I decided to use the panel in this a little differently then the pattern calls for and luckily I had just enough extra fabric that I could pull it off.

It was hard getting a picture of the finished thing – breezy day and it’s so long – I really don’t have someplace to hang something this big to take a picture. So it’s not a very good picture but overall it looks very nice.

So the changes I did:

  • Rather than use the panel as center pieces for the stars, i used the panel to extend the sides.
  • Moved the bear paw out to the corners of the inside (now square)
  • I made 6 extra stars so that I could square it off.
  • Added a burgundy for the stars & dark brown for the log cabin centers.
  • the inside sashing is not quite as wide as it was called for but I made it to fit the now extended sides.

I still ended up with a good amount of fabric left – not the outer boarder – 2 pieces 6×10 and 1 piece 3xWOF – I so lucked out on that for sure.   I did lay it on my queen size bed and it does cover it with a 4 inch or so hang over.

I did notice when I had the center log cabin circle put together that I do not have them arranged quite right. But they went together so  nicely that I just couldn’t pull it apart – so that is a bit annoying but it really did go together nicely.

Just because the colors are so beautiful – here’s another picture of it.
