    I went to a quilt show last week, and fell in love with this quilt that was hanging from the railing in a church. There are stars inside some of the stars. Now I'm positive I have seen this pattern in one of my books. I've been through about 15 books, and I just can't seem to put my hand on this pattern. Do you recognize this quilt, and can you tell me which book it's in. I'd be so grateful.

    I am not sure, but check out some of Judy Martin's book, & see if you find it, or something similar in any of hers. If you go to her site, there is even a gallery, where quilters have posted pics of her different quilt designs they have made. Maybe you will find one there, then you will know the pattern to look for. Hope this helps!

    I thought it looked like the pattern I have and it is! I have it for EQ http://www.electricquilt.com/shop/ju...judymartin.asp

    Looks like it's out of stock but the pattern is a Judy Martin pattern.

    Yes, Nancy. I went to Judy Martin's website and looked at her 2004 photos. And there it is. So now, I know who the quilt maker was.. Thanks so much. I'm heading up to my library to look at my Judy Martin books. Thanks

    I think the name of it is "I have a dream" by Judy Martin. It is in her "Cookies N Quilt" book. Hope you find it ok.
