Smile Searching for a particular quilt

Hi Everyone,

I've been missing from this Board for a while due to family obligations and making more quilts than I know what to do with. I do read through some of the forums, but just haven't contributed lately.

I am hoping that someone might recall seeing a star quilt (I believe it was a Carpenter's Star) a year or so ago (it might even have been in 2011) that looked like it was exploding from the center out. It was one of the most beautiful quilts I've ever seen and I recall showing it to my DH, so I know it exists. The problem is, I can't recall who made it or whether it was a Carpenter's Star at all. It may have been another pattern altogether, but it looked like it was blowing up from the center outward. I believe it went from a yellow center out to darker colors, but my ever worsening case of CRS kicks in and I'm not sure.

If any of you remember the quilt or the person who made it, would you please let me know. I would like to make one similar to it as a Christmas gift and need to see how the colors were coordinated to make it look like that.

Thanks tons!

Also, there's the search function at the top of this page.

Plus if you go back thru the threads there was one in the last few days where someone was looking for the CS pattern and many provided links.

And too, if you posted to the particular thread you are thinking about, if you go back thru your previous posts, you can find it!

Thanks, ladies. Beautiful but not the one I'm looking for. :-(

This pattern is from Jan Krentz's book "Lone Star Quilts and Beyond".

Thanks, but that's not it either. I seem to recall that it was a Carpenter's Star pattern, but with the colors starting in the center and coming out and filling the entire pattern, making it look like it was a firework exploding from the center outward. Gosh, I wish I could find it. I looked at the Gallery and it's not there. I know I'm losing my mind in small increments, but this particular quilt I recall vividly because I thought I'd never be in a position to make it and I really wanted to. Now, with some experience behind me, I know I could do it, but I'd like to see it again for color purposes. Thanks for all your suggestions.

Did you try the other suggestions that I gave you?

Google images of Carpenter Star quilt and every variation of that name, like just carpenters star, carpenter star quilts (the plural), carpenter Star quilt pattern, etc. If you still can't find it after all that I would see if you can't download a line drawing of a carpenter star quilt and get out your crayons or colored pencils.

Here are my results using "Carpenter Star Quilt"
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&s...mg.VmgwGYT604o

Edited to add, also do a search on Broken star, a very similar pattern but more intricate. It is kind of like a hybred between lone star and carpenter's star
