    Scroll down to Birthday star Block #33
    It has the pattern there as well
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    I've never seen this block before. It's beautiful. Tried to find the pattern but this is the closest I found.

    Oh should have read the threads before I posted this. Thanks for the sites and pattern.

    It is called Birthday Star Block. Here is the link I used to make a patriotic one for the Quilt of Valor quilt I am working on:

    Wow, links to two great patterns, I love both of them, especially the Birthday Star, would love to make that in a scrappy quilt, with a common background fabric - maybe in batiks with a light batik bg? That list just keeps on getting longer and longer - I'm going to have to live to be about 150 IOT make half the projects I want to make!

    I love it, printed it from dreamcastles.com as suggested. Had not seen this site before so many thanks to the quilter as well as the finder.

    Great timing. This is perfect as my daughter is turning 6 tomorrow. I can make some of these for her and design a quilt top around them. I love the links. Amazing!
