    I recently went to a Quilt show and saw a stunning wall hanging that said it was the "Mexican Star" pattern. When I was at my LQS last week, I was telling the owner there about it and she said "we have that pattern here". So, of course, I bought it. Has anyone made this that you can post a picture of it on here? I am looking for inspiration for color ideas for it. Thanks in advance for any suggestions or pics.

    This is the one I made, only the pattern is reversed. I messed up reading the color chart.

    free pattern online listed as Mexican Star is usually a variation on the Kansas City Star pattern by Ruby McKim. You can find other free pattern versions by checking for 'Mexican Cross' also. =)

    I bought the pattern visiting DD in Denver. So far it is taunting me to make it.

    Isn't it amazing what color and values do to a pattern? I love to see the changes. Another nice quilt.
