I've seen it called Texas Star, too, and have seen a couple of patterns for it in old quilt magazines, and a book I have called "the Encyclopedia of Classic Quilt Patterns". None of the patterns I've seen use English Paper Piecing, though, just regular templates (I think. Now I'm curious and I may go check to be sure).

I am repairing the quilt myself. I have several to do. I know for sure this quilt was not paper pieced as my Grannie lived with us (or us with her depending on the years) and I saw her working on the quilts. I have some of the old articles from magazines and newspapers where they would get the patterns. Maybe we will call it Texas Star Bouquet!

This is a great board. Everybody willing to share their information. No wonder quilting is thriving.

Oh no, another hand pieced quilt I can't resist. Don't know the name but love the pattern.

The bellaonline quilt doesn't have the true hexagon in the center or the diamond shape. Is it still called the same thing?
