Great niece Tori graduates from high school this year and will be going off to college, majoring in communications. Her mom told me that blue was her favorite color, so I dipped deep into my stash for this log cabin star. I did use a variety of shirtings for the lighter strips. It's amazing how much fabric goes into one of these. It was long armed over the winter and just recently bound and mailed to Michigan. I love it and am glad she does, too.
