    I really like your idea of making a sampler quilt with different star patterns. That will go on my to do list.

    There's also a really cool split LeMoyne Star that's really striking if you do it in bold, contrasting colors. It's what's in the middle of my sampler!

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    *Edited to add, I'm thinking of each block being 12" finished, but I could do a medallion in the center and then blocks around. :)
    Jennifer and others: sorry this took some editing. I HAD to post before dashing off to church!! Here is the star and 2 sets. If you would like a copy for free of the paper pieced pattern for the star...or additional info on the settings, send me an e-mail via my quilt design website at villagequilter.weebly.com. Use the comment/request form and I will send you a FREE copy of the templates for the Prairie Star pattern.
    Both of your wall hangings of the prairie star layout are beautiful

    Thanks for refreshing my memory on those Dream Castle blocks! I collected them all since I do looooove star blocks. Now I'm retired and have time to do something with them.

    I have always liked the Chicago Star, it is sort of one step up over the Ohio Star, having an added piece in the point to give more variation. Sounds like you have a good plan started.
