    Thanks for all the wonderful praise! I'm making a grab ball from the scraps to go with the quilt. It was a UFO only because it didn't have a recipient.

    Thankfully, I was able to find the link. The spinners are paper pieced.

    Oh wow! It is adorable..! I love stars. I'm in processing of making star blocks for my 1st DGS when he graduates in 2 yrs then the next yr his bro. Boys are hard to do anything (just about) for so I went with star. I have 5 DGD so girls are no problem.

    This doesn't seem to be the same star. I love your spinners -- six points instead of five. BTW -- your little quilt is beautiful. I can see where either boy or girl would love those bright colors.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    My apologies. You are right about the star. I used a different star pattern. It's by Ula Lenz called Triple 6ray Star. I can't find a link, but I did send an email to Ula Lenz asking if it was still available. On the pattern, each point of the spinner actually called for three different fabrics, but I just used the same fabric for all pieces.

    I did find this one

    which is very similar and could be squared off instead of hexagonal.

    Just an update. I got this reply from Ula Lenz:

    "We set up our page completely new and so it will take some time to upload so many pages. The free patterns will take a bit longer but the stars, the hearts and the New York Beauty patterns will come and they will be available for free in the future, too. Best wishes from Munich, Germany"
