    Back on April 5, or so, I posted looking for help on how to make the Songahm Star into a quilt block. BevF was kind enough to draw up a plan for me. It was based on a grid line paper. I had asked to have it about 12". However, I used what she created and increased everything by three. This now measures 50" x 50". My son absolutely loves it. I let him pick the backing. Then I put two labels on it. The label in the left corner is what the original picture I had to work from and that is what BevF used as well.

    I can't wait to hang it on his wall. :-D

    I remember seeing the original post and thinking-that is going to be tough. Wondered if it would come to be--wonderful quilt, great work and a big nod to BevF for helping you make this wonderful gift.

    Very nice! There is a lot of symbolism in this block. :) And I love that backing fabric too! :)

    Thanks everyone. It was so nice when my 4 year old son said at nap today, "mom, can you bring my quilt in my room and hang it". So I have it hanging on his closet now. He layed down and turned toward it and said, "mom, that sure is a beautiful quilt". It made me so happy :)

    Hi! I have been trying to figure out how to make a Songahm Star quilt for my daughter's teacher and then I found this! It is amazing! Is there any way I can purchase or get a copy of the pattern?

    Thanks so much!

    Awe, how sweet, and that really made it well worth all the effort, huh! Beautiful quilt!

    There is no better feeling than making a quilt that immediately brings joy to the recipient! A wonderful tale and a great quilt. Thanks for sharing.

    It's lovely.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
