    I looks like a lone star, but with 9 pieced diamonds?
    Very unique looking.

    Looks like that to me too. Rather than having the normal 45 degree diamonds (360/8), you would cut 40 degree ones (360/9). Unfortunately, you would need to cut your own template as I don't think there are any 40 degree rulers out there.

    Spectacular is what I would call it. I am not being funny. That is terrific.

    wow - is it hand pieced ? it's really terrific. I would guess it's a Lone Star variation.

    Known to me as Missouri star--a variation on Lone Star that was popular in the Ozarks----
    I think 30s and 40s was when Sadie made hers. I saw it at her house in the 70s....

    I thought so too. The top does have some stains on it, but I am going to go ahead and have it quilted and bound before I attempt to remove the stain. I believe it was made from feed and flour sacks from the 30's. The blocks are all hand pieced then it looks like they were machine stitched together at a later time. I nearly cried when I saw all of the lovely hand work. I know that sounds silly...but I really did!

    I'm guessing 30's from the fabrics but I am no expert.

    I have my grandmothers quilt with the same star I think. She died last year at 102. I wish I could ask her.

    Lonestar, 30's -40's fabric but could have been made later. You can hand wash this by soaking it in oxy clean or efferdent over night then wringing out in a towel and let dry outside with a sheet over and under it til damp then press dry.

    Lone Star; I've also seen it called Bethlehem Star.
    Perhaps, like me, the quilter had a "lone star gone wrong" and her solution was a 9th diamond arm.

    Very close. Looks like yours has 8 points and the one I have is 9 points. What a treasure you have...oh the memories! Thanks for sharing the photo. I love it.
