    Hello everyone, I am looking for the Morning Star pattern. Does anyone have the pattern that you could share with me or know where I can find the pattern. I have a picture of it in an old magazine, but no pattern, and I want to make this block if I can find the pattern. Thanks in advance to all of you.

    Grannyp: I just finished a quilt called Evening Star. I got the pattern from Clothilde.com. They seem to have the older patterns so they might have the one you're looking for. Hmm-wonder what the difference is between Morning Star and Evening Star? Maybe it's just the colors so I hope this helps in what you're looking for.

    grannyp, I just tried to look at that free pattern at p&b textiles but I couldn't get the pdf file. The area where you click to get the file didn't work. Not sure if it's just my computer or if the pattern is no longer available.

    No that isn't the pattern I am looking for. The picture of the one that I am looking for has 23 triangles around it with 8 small squares set around them and a 8-pointed star in the middle, with triangles on each corner. This picture is in an old quilt book from GoodHousekeeping back in 1965, my elderly aunt sent this to me a few weeks ago, but it doesn't have the pattern, so I don't know how much fabric, or how many pieces to cut and how to put it together.
    Thanks for your help anyway, sure do apperciate it very much.

    Grannyp70 - if you can't find the pattern and you have a good picture then maybe you could use graph paper and make your own, or if you have an EQ program you could do it on the computer. I've made many patterns this way, just takes a little time, but you get exactly what you're looking for. :) Hope you find it, now I'm curious.

    Good luck with finding what you want...thought I had it, but see from an earlier post it isn't what you're looking for

    Thanks to all of you for your help. I will try and post a picture of the picture of the block. Well for some reason I can't get the picture to post. But thanks any for all your help. If I can't find the pattern I will try and make one myself, never have done that before but I will try if I can't find the pattern.

    Hi Janetlmt, I would apperciate you sending me the pattern you have if it isn't one that has been posted here earlier for me to see, if its the same pattern then it isn't the one I am looking for. I will pm you my email add.

    There are several sites with galleries of Native American Morning Star quilts that you could look through for a match. Try this one http://www.nativeamericanstarquilts....troduction.htm

    Hi Beverely, Yes pattern #1 is the one that I am looking for. Where did you find it? I have looked all over the internet trying to find it and haven't been able to. Thanks when you can let me know where you found it please.

    It's in Barbara Brackman's book, Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Blocks. It also goes by the names: Dutch Rose, Eccentric Star, Octagonal Star, Orphan Star, Star and Diamond, Triple Star, & Unknown Star. I think I have seen it as Dutch Rose somewhere. It is the same as Carpenter's Wheel/Carpenter's Star but with one color instead. Here's the easy version of Carpenter's Wheel: http://www.quilterscache.com/C/Carpe...heelBlock.html

    What a co-incidence! That is the block I have picked out for my centrepiece on the International RR III. Now I just have to decide on colours :D

    Yep, but it sure is a pretty block. I can't wait to make mine, I still have to decide on what colors to use, I am thinking about turquoise and light brown maybe, but for sure turquoise. Any suggestions of what other color to use with the turquoise.

    I found a neat pattern called Double Dutch Rose: http://piecebynumber.com/Sq/sqintro.htm

    Here is the traditional Dutch Rose with some color options: http://equiltblocks.com/cgi-bin/bloc...&path=./other/

    And Carpenter's Wheel from the same site as above with some color options: http://equiltblocks.com/cgi-bin/bloc...&path=./other/
