    Really like the double Aster. Think if I made it I would convert it to PP.

    Barbara Brackman's "Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns" identified this as "Double Windmill" and credits it to Nancy Cabot. However, with a change in fabrics she also uses "Double Aster" as an ID, again Nancy Cabot.

I absolutely love her blocks. This one in particular was made for a Boom 9 swap buddy. She sent the busy fabric and I supplemented and it turned out perfect. It was my favorite block I did in the swap.
    Yes, Thank you Alikat110....I suspected it may be paperpieced...I am taking the Craftsy Paperpieced class with Carol Doak, so I will look this one up once I have some more practice...thx again for sharing.

    Beautiful block...the link to quilter's cache does break down the pieces and cutting well...would just try one block a step at a time and see how it goes.

    This star reminds me of one in Judy Martin's scrap book, purchased decades ago. She calls hers Oriental Star and is on my bucket list.

    I would call it "a beauty" but I am sure that's not the real name!

    Lovely block, looked at pattern on quilters cache, I might try this on a one block that could be used as a mug rug for the table. This would give me a chance to see if I would try it on an entire quilt. I do see ***scant 1/4 inch seam***!
    Anymore I use a scant and find it works better for me. Pretty block and does look challenging. Thanks for sharing your question.
