A Log Cabin That Lays Flat

One of the basic beginner quilt blocks has been a headache to me from day one.  I love the log cabin and the court house step blocks but have struggled for years to get the blocks made to lay flat.   I’ve bought special rulers, squares etc. and still they never want to lay flat.

I decided I would try the Missouri Star pattern for a curved log cabin.  Viloa, 36 flat blocks.  I was impressed.  After putting them together twice and picking them back apart, I finally found a layout I liked.    Not sure where it will end up living, but it’s finished.   They are made using a Robert Kaufman jelly roll called Holiday Flourish and a silver on white small print.

Updated to show it was gifted to a friend of my cousins who gifted me a beautiful treadle
