    I believe it is the Arkansas Star. http://www.quilterscache.com/A/Arkan...lakeBlock.html This is a link, just imagine it without the spinning stars in the middle. Hope this helps.

    Happy New Year!
    Believe, it can be done!

    Hi all; Hope every one has a Happy New Year! I looked at it and to me it looks like a pattern using Phillips Fiber Arts Squedge ruler. She makes round quilts but has an addition to make them square.

    I do think it looks like the Arkansas Star but alas I've never done paper piecing, is there something similar that wouldn't require paper piecing? I'm going to check a few more of your suggestions that you all have offered on this thread. Thanks for the continued suggestions.

    I did contact the store and at that time they did not know the name as it was an antique quilt from Jenny's personal collection, but thank-you boneyard for the suggestion. :0)

    The comments state that this quilt is an antique from her personal collection.

    I'm going to say it's called the 'hummingbird' one patch block just repeated. It is a very old block

    I would call it the hummingbird block. I think that one of the early Fons and Porter "Sew Many Quilts" magazines has the instructions.

    Kathy I do believe that's IT! The octagon's between the kites!!!! It is an old quilt pattern and now I can order the templates to make this. Thank-you so MUCH! Those are definitely octagons between the kites to my eye in Jenny's quilt.

    It is a very pretty quilt. I LOVE Jenny's tutorials! Where is the best online place to order the periwinkle star template? Thanks!

    I just typed "periwinkle star template" in google and came up with a host of sites that should give you what you need. Good Luck!

    The quilt is an antique quilt from her personal collection. She is working on a tutorial for a similar quilt. It will be in the next magazine. She is also using a Baby Lock machine and she loves it!!!!
