Yvonne's Christmas Star30 December 2014

Yvonne’s Christmas Star is a 2-color, multi-fabric quilt in a horizontal setting. It measures 75 x 75 inches. Log Cabin blocks can be laid out in many different settings. This star setting seemed just right for a Christmas quilt. If you are quirky like me, you cut out all your Inklingo shapes with scissors and enjoy the long, slow process. If you like to be efficient and use your rotary cutter, you can layer-to-cut your printed pieces of fabric and be done in no time. Linda explains layering to cut on the Inklingo blog and more about it in her article on the Quilting Hub.

This design uses the Inklingo .75″ Log Cabin Collection. I colored the blocks in EQ7 very simply with color swatches available in the program. You could use Christmas fabrics or do a scrappy version as well.

Yvonne Colepaugh is my 1st cousin 2x times removed. She and my grandmother, Helen are first cousins. Yvonne’s mother died during childbirth and the five children were taken in by relatives. My great-grandmother, Catherine (Colepaugh) McEvoy took in Yvonne and her brother, Maurice and raised them as her own. (What’s two more when you already have a dozen of your own?)
