When you say a star, are you thinking of a pieced star, an appliqued
star, or perhaps a star that's drawn on or dyed or maybe on the fabric
And when you say a pattern, what do you look for in a pattern? I ask
because log cabin usually isn't complicated enough to require a pattern.
The center square can be any size, and the logs can be any width.
It's one of those wonderfully adaptive blocks where you sew first and
trim off the excess. But maybe you're thinking of something specific
where a pattern would help.
We might be thinking along the same lines. With the careful placement
of lights and darks, you could use log cabin blocks to make a quilt with
a star design. I'm going to google for this and see what I find.

In the center there is pieced star "the star is made of a center
square then the points are like flying geese and in the corners are
4-patch. Then the log cabin strips around this at the end of each
strip is a square piece. I not very good with piecing thats why I was
looking for a pattern with directions for this block.
*Any* block that consists of half-square triangles and squares can be made
with log cabin blocks- just by the color placement.... Lemoyne star,
pinwheels, flying geese, etc.

layout made in full bed size using the left side as the pillow end would make a real beauty i reckon.adding this to the list of ones to figure out.hmmmm, tis only 4 x 6 blocks there, done in 12" blocks, still too small.will have to revise that somehow....maybe add one more row at the pillow end extending the design out one more block each side,
so 6 x 7 and perhaps making the blocks 15" rather than 12"
need to wait til i've had some food to work thru that.
looks fairly straight forward tho and with the right fabrics/colours could be a
we'll see. thanks for that link, Lia.
