Default Does anyone recognize this block pattern?

I remember seeing a quilt made up of various brightly coloured blocks with this design and separated by sashing. They looked like floating stars. I drew out the block on graph paper quite a while ago, lost it in the bowels of my sewing room, found it again just last week, and made a scrappy sample. I have searched and searched the internet but cannot find any info on it. It uses the tri-recs ruler to make the star and the center is a snowball block. I really hope someone recognizes it and can give it a name.

I don't have a name and I have never seen this block before but I sure do love your sample. You go girl and make a lot of these blocks and what a great scrappy it would make.

Sadly although I own the ruler I don't own your fabrics otherwise I surely would make a whole quilt using that block. I hope you do make a large quilt and show it to the rest of us!

If anyone wants to try this block, the secret to getting those pesky points to match is to iron the tri recs seams to the inside on one square and to the outside on the other. Then they nest rather nicely together. I also learned thru trial and error, to oversize my tri recs by about an eighth of an inch and trim after pressing. I sure wish I could remember where I saw the pattern.

It's look like the Ohio Star with the center block snowballed.

I've never seen the star before but I really like. Maybe we should call it Ginger's Star? Another option to those triangles is a rectangular hourglass. That would eliminate some of the seams.
