    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
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...ar-t92871.html

    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.

    Well I guess I'm very challenged when it comes to drafting on paper....I've looked at the very poor picture I posted...can't see how to draft it...But I did look at the Expolding Star example...I guess I would need to have someone with EQ help me out.

    The Quilt was called Exploding Star and was in a book (I believe) Scrap Quilting Made Easy by Sue Harvey. It was published by House of White Birches but I believe it is no longer in print. The quilt is all half quare triangles and a bunch of them. I started this about 10 years ago and never finished it but have all of the triangles made and most of the blocks put together. I found it recently but am still searching for my book - if you can't find it let me know, I am going to look over at my mother's this weekend.

    I updated my post with a source for you. Posting again

    http://www.amazon.com/Scrap-quilting.../dp/1882138236

    Additionally if you go to the other link I provided on the QB on about page 7 or so the poster put up instructions on how to draft it yourself.

    The quilt is called exploding star. It is in the book Scrap Quilting Made Easy edited by Sandra Hatch from House of White Birches. I've got all my 2.5 inch pieces cut, I just have to sew them together to make this masterpiece. God knows when I will get that accomplished! Isn't it gorgeous!?

    If the book is out of print, can I post the directions etc. on this board and not violate any copyright laws? I would be happy to do that since I own the book. (bought and paid for with my hard earned cash!) lol

    The book may be out of print but is still available new and used. The amazon link I posted had it used for less than $2

    This pattern is called Exploding Star... It is in the book Scrap quilting Made Easy. It is made from Half Square triangles. I made this in 2001, after winning a basket of fat quarters the year before at the quilt show.
    I remember making all the half square and then having to square them all up before sewing. (fairly new quilter at that time) this is only about 45 inches square... but using larger half square would make it bigger.

    LOVE LOVE THE QUILT.
