    Yesterday a board member posted a picture asking if anyone knew the day of a block that was in a picture posted by another board member. I spent the rest of the day and most of the night looking for that block. After pouring through books, online sites, and my EQ7 I ended up empty handed. So I decide to recreate the block and this is my version. I call it "Candlequilter Star" and dedicate it to anyone and everyone who has used candle light to quilt by. It was very obvious in the picture danjfalke posted of the quilt made with this block that it was very old. I am not trying to take away from anyones design or anything. It is a beautiful quilt that he shared the picture of and this is just my version of that block. I hope whoever quilted that quilt many years ago is looking down with a smile on her face because that design is still bringing joy to people.

    Thanks,

    I will be working up directions on my EQ7 for this block. If anyone does come up with the original name please let me know. Again this is just my version that I am calling "Candlequilter Star".

    My version called "Candlequilter Star"

    I saw that post and was going to suggest that someone work it up in EQ. You beat me to it! I love that star, and would love the pattern. I'll be happy to pay you for it, you deserve it since you did the "design" work. And I really love your color choices!

    I love the LeMoyne Star pattern and all I could think was that this was someone's variation on that. There was an older antique folded Christmas Star pattern very similar. Can't wait for your directions...thanks.

    I was right there with you, searching. However, I didn't have enough initiative or skill to recreate it myself. I thought it had some of the look of a mariner's compass, without the light/dark aspect on each star point. Your star is gorgeous. I too would love to see how it was made!

    Yes put me there on that purchase list as well, I really love this one. Is it very hard to do as I am a beginner. Even if it is hard, I would still buy it so I would have it for later.
