Default Looking for a quilt pattern...

Going through some older QNM (June 1999 to be exact) magazines and came across a posted pic of a quilt that I would like/hope to find.....It says ... 1904 STAR QUILT 98"x108" and apparently it was a raffle quilt by the Minnesota Quilter's. Cross fingers...I am going to attempt to post a picture

This is a great block! I like it because it can be paper pieced, and that's my favorite method. Let me know if you'd like a piecing diagram and what size block you want to make. Here it is from EQ with similar coloring.

Pretty quilt block but it's the quilting that makes the quilt outstanding.

Just thought of something ...so if the bigger stars are 12" ...does that make the 4 corner ones 6"?

Here you go. You need to print four of the second page - those are the corners. You can decide on a border size and then reduce the pattern to whatever size you like.
