    My MIL came over with this old quilt that was in tatters. It had a star pattern that I had not seen done like this before.

    That is stunning!! What a creative maker. I do not think that I have ever seen that pattern before. Notice how all of the red is tiny 60 degree diamonds. I believe that this is hand pieced as well as hand quilted.

    Wow! What a wonderful quilt. Neat pattern, sure looks hard. Looks like it's hand-pieced and hand-quilted. What a treasure. If you figure out how to do the pattern, please post.

    I love this pattern!!! Would you care if I used it? It really isn't as hard as it looks, it's a wide strip with a narrow one sewn on, cut to make a 60 degree diamond then another narrow strip added to the side. Each star is made with 8 diamonds, 4 of one center, 4 of another with every other diamond inverted. The narrow strips are the same color on each diamond in the star. I've never seen it before but it sure is pretty. And yes, by looking at the third picture I can tell that it IS hand pieced. What a wonderful find!!!
