I want to make a star quilt block sampler quilt. :) Which star blocks are your favorites? Which would you include?

Inquiring minds want to know!

*Edited to add, I'm thinking of each block being 12" finished, but I could do a medallion in the center and then blocks around. :)

Friendship star, Ohio star, floating star, double star (depending on block size)

It would be more the problem of deciding which ones I would not include as there'd be too many to choose from!!! :)

Traditional, Paper Pieced, Free Hand (I'm sure there's a proper name for that!) ... and anything in between.

However, it'd depend on what sort of a look I'd want, that I might keep to one type or the other. The fabric would speak to me!

Carpenter Star. I just put one in a sampler type quilt and it worked well. Ohio Star. My Friendship Star is done with 4 patches instead of solids in the center and corners. I like it, except I had to use strange colors (high school colors).

I love all star blocks, but my favorites are Friendship, Ohio, Hunter and some of the spinning star blocks.

I picked 8 from here to make pillow covers. I picked a few that weren't too hard and worked my way up to difficult LOL

I will confess that pick #8 was abandoned in favor of a string star free-pieced!

there's a Carol Doak book of 50 stars---one for each of the 50 states- i would love to make a quilt with all of them!...one of these day's i might-
i would browse that book and add as many of them as i was (drawn to) and would fit.
