Log Cabin Wonky Star Variation Tutorial

by Judy Tucker

To make a Log Cabin Variation of the Wonky Star Block

Materials needed:
    2.5 inch square for the center of the Log Cabin block
    6-8 strings (strips 3/4 inch to 1.5 inches wide)  They can be symmetric widths or asymmetric. It's a modern block so it's up to you!


The center block for the Wonky Star needs to measure 5 inches (finishes at 4.5 inches)

Cut the first 2 strings 2.5 inches and sew to the right and left sides of the center square

Measure the width of the block you have just sewn

Cut 2 more strips to and sew to the top and bottom of the block.  

Continue to build this block until you have a block at least 5 inches square.   If your block is larger than that, trim it to 5" square.  This block ended up asymmetric when it measured 5 inches.  That's fine. 

Now you are ready to make your Wonky Star.  I recommend that Victoria Gertenbach's  excellent Wonky Star Tutorial to make the Wonky Star block.

Have fun!
