Cabin Among the Stars - Free PDF

I am so very excited to share my finished Cabin Among the Stars Quilt and the Free Cabin Among the Stars PDF with it!!!!   I know you have all been patiently waiting for me to finish this up, which makes it all the more fun to share it.   Didn't it just turn out so incredible, I love it!!! 

This quilt is made with 2 simple blocks.   The first block is a basic Sawtooth Star made in a Light and and Dark layout.   And of course, I use the No Waste Flying Geese method to make those stars ;)    And the second block is a basic Log Cabin block, alternating dark and light prints.   Both blocks are super easy to make, and this quilt is an amazing stash buster!!!  It's nothing but scraps!!!  

I choose to use scraps in all neutrals.   The lights are neutrals in whites and cremes and the darks are neutrals in black, greys, and browns.  I have been wanting to make an all neutral quilt for sometime, and I have to say, I just love the way it turned out and can't wait to make another one!!!  And double bonus, I can now close my grey, brown, and black scraps drawers that were overflowing ;)

When it came time to quilt it, I decided on an all over Open Centered Swirl.  I quilted on a slightly larger scale than I usually do so it went really fast and was oh so much fun to quilt. I used my favorite 402 So Fine which blended perfectly into the low volume background and still blended great on the darker prints.  Have I mentioned how much I love 402, and I broke into my last spool with this quilt, time for another thread order :) 


And isn't that just an awesome texture!!!  And I love how this angle really shows off the "stripe" design of how the log cabin blocks are set around the stars.   So fun!!!   



And I have to just share my new favorite backings!!! Ombre Wide Backs!!!  They are so great.  I love the gentle change of color, and not having to piece a back for a queen size quilt just makes me do a happy dance.    And I love how the thread pops in the black parts and blends in the grey parts, so fun :) 


So now, it's your turn to make your own Cabin Among the Stars Quilt.   I am toying with the idea of doing another one in the fall for a quilt along, but we will see.   I am pretty sure that once you all have the PDF, you will be just like me, and not want to wait to whip up this great stash buster!!!


I made the Queen/King size, but I included 5 size options in the Cabin Among the Stars Free PDF.   Here is the details of what you will need and the finished sizes for each of the 5 quilt options.  



I hope you enjoy this free Cabin Among the Stars PDF Pattern and that you make your own quilts!!!  And if you do, I would love to see them ;)   You can email me a picture at happyquiltingmelissa@gmail.com or add it to social media with the hashtag #happyquiltingwithmc and #cabinamongthestarsquilt ;)  I can't wait to see your Cabin Among the Stars Quilts!!!


Thanks so much for popping in and sharing this finish with me.  If you have any questions at all on making your own, don't hesitate to email me at happyquiltingmelissa@gmail.com  

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!!

  2. Yes, it's incredible! All the colors came together beautifully, they're my two favorite blocks, and the swirl quilting is perfect. Now I've got to get sewing. I just cut out a quilt this morning & have to finish it Pronto so I can make one.

  8. To be honest I'm not usually a STARS fan, but this is so beautiful you may have just changed my mind. Thank you so much for this free pattern. I wonder if it would look good in red, white, and blue? Just thinking on this Fourth of July.

    Thank you for the pattern. I think I am going to do in RED, White, and Blue. I have been wanting to do a long cabin with my RWB fabric collection and this will be great for it.

  17. Melissa, if you had told me that I would love a neutral quilt, I wouldn't have believed you, but wow!! That is beautiful!!! It is a great pattern (love the diagonal look it has), and who can go wrong with stars! :-) And the little pop of tan/brown give it some extra interest: beautiful job!! Another one of your quilts that I need to make (but I can't keep up with you!!) Hugs, H
