    Looking for a star block pattern...

    I saw a star quilt block that was made from someone's leftover HSTs. It has only 2 fabrics -- print and background. The center is a print snowball, and the HSTs make the star points. But there's like a background sashing between the snowball and the star points. I thought it would be easy to find, but I've been searching for about a week and can't find it. Anyone have any ideas?

    We've had a few pictures of "Tennessee Waltz" lately and a thread on the 54-40 or Fight block which is the star block.

    Here's one the threads, that was done with a 9-patch variation instead of the snowball.

    Here's mine which is one of my rare planned quilts instead of scrappy.

    Here's a sketch. But the thing that is throwing me off is that this would use quarter square triangles, not half square triangles. By the time I turn my HSTs into QSTs they'll be pretty small. And the "sashing" around the snowball is uneven. That doesn't seem right. Also, the center snowball was proportionately larger. I'm doing a lot of scribbling and erasing.

    This one is different but sort of matches your description.

    Your picture looks like a combination of Ohio Star and Snowball.

    Maybe you're thinking of Sunrise Star.

    Check also Twisted Star or Sunburst.

    I love the Sunrise and Sunburst patterns! I wonder if one of those was it. They're both made with QSTs.

    Thanks for all of your help!

    Check out Deb Tucker's Galaxy pattern. Super easy, quick and easy to up-size by adding a couple of borders.
