    Sherryl, I sent a picture of the star to my sister, who immediately emailed back and asked if I could make her a quilt with that star in the center! I am going to make it 24", and surround it with squares of various sizes. It will be made of flannel in blues and browns and greens, which we have already been collecting. Thanks so much for the inspiration. It is just what she needs to help her thru some tough times ahead.

    That is so sweet. I hope that you post pictures after you get it made. I would love to see them and I really hope that it brings her the care, love and meaning that will help her.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Thank you Sherryl for your help in posting this picture for me. I love the pattern and I do thank you for all of your patience and emails to help me out. I hope the other frustrated ladies will give it another try. It is satisfying when you get it finished. Thank you for the challenge and willingness to teach all of us to think outside the box! I hope you get lots of blocks!

    Sometimes looking at this picture helps figure out how they go.

    Hello Cathie; I haven't been on the Board for a long time but notice your star, it is beautiful. I've not read all the history relating to this topic but notice in Maggie Malone 1001 Patchwork Designs 1982 Pattern No.862 page 175 that this star seems to have been adapted from Tennessee Star.

    I read a few pages in the topic but not had time to go back to the beginning - are there other stars in this particular quilt ?

    If you search candlequilter, or PM her, she can give you all the details.

    It looks beautiful!! I think the challenge is in piecing the sections and making the intersections right for sharp points. Yours is beautifully done!
