    Can You Help Me Identify This Pattern?

    Can you help me identify the pattern (Star Quilt) on the front of this book? If it is in a book or an individual pattern, I want to make large quilt not a wall hanging.

    I can't identify the pattern but I did find the book on Amazon for less than $4.00!

    The book may not have the pattern but should list the name of the pattern on the credits page. Someone may have the book to check for you.
    Got fabric?

    Thank-you BellaBoo....indeed this is not a pattern book, a book on color theory only and indeed maybe someone has the book and it will identify the quilt pattern. I appreciate your time in repy.

    Don't know the pattern, but it looks like it is made from half square triangles. You may be able to draft it out on paper. Even though it has lots of fabrics in it, the pattern can be thought of as a two-color quilt. Color 1 is the lights and Color 2 is the darks.

    Once you've sketched out the pattern on paper, just pick a square size that would make it be the size you're wanting.

    Never done one, but isn't this a Lone Star, with the colored blocks arranged to distinguish the dark outlines against the light? I just went on EQ7 and I came up with the same colorworks just by taking a Lone Star block and coloring it according to your picture. Sure looks the same to me....

    I think someone posted a picture of this quilt a year or two ago, try searching for it here on the picture forum.

    Yup they did here
    Exploding Star

    THe poster drafted it up herself and put instructions in the thread. She called it Exploding star. It is nothing but scrappy HST and would be fairly easy to draft. I tried googling a pattern for Exploding star and couldnt' find one, but I know there is an actual pattern out there. Personally, I would get the graph paper or someone with EQ and draft it up myself.

    did a little more research. A pattern for it can be found in this book:

    I think it is called an Exploding Star. A clerk at our local Singer store had hers displayed on one of the machines. I feel in love with the pattern and she said it was from a magazine and would look it up for me. She couldn't find it so I went and took pictures and drew it out on graph paper. Then about a year ago someone had posted a picture and hers was hanging in the background. When people asked about the one on the wall she said it was called an Exploding Star so I finally had a name for my quilt.
