    My great grandmother pieced this quilt in the 1930s in Indiana. I am now hoping to finish it but would like to have more information before I begin. If anyone recognizes it, I would be deeply appreciative.

    On pg. 3 of "849 Traditional Patchwork Patterns" by Susan Winter Mills it is called Box and Star. Hope this helps you. It is a beautiful quilt and a treasure to have.

    It's also known as Garden Star. As with most older blocks it has several names.

    keepsakequilting.com has about the best selection of 30's repro solids that I've seen. I have mixed them with both repros and original feedsacks, and they match very well.

    Beautiful quilt...you are so luck to have this connection with a family member.

    I went upstairs and looked in one of my very old pattern books and it is closest to the Bethlehem star because it has the hexagon center. Which was almost exact to this block. A search on line resulted with the closest I could see was a star of david block.
    My grandmother also made one like this. It is very interesting isn't it? I think like someone else said, it depends on which area you come from what the name of it is.

    Thank you all for the wonderful advice and sources to follow-up on. I will certainly post a picture when it is finished but it may take a while as I am very new to this.

    The picture is very true to the green. And a nice match to the blinds in my spare bedroom completely by chance.

    I just finished reading the article and ran up to get one of the other two quilts I have that she did. Same sorts of colours but this one is hexagons in the entirety and has the hexagonal edges mentioned in the article! It is so nice to know more about all of these things I have. (sorry the colour and background aren't a goo but it is evening and there is very poor light in my bedroom so I had to resort to the kitchen)

    Reminds of a form of Grandmothers Flower Garden but have no idea if that even comes close to what your pattern is. :)
