    Danjfalke just posted some beautiful pics of antique quilts. There is one that is just so lovely I'd love to try to make the blocks in it myself someday. Can anyone tell me the name of the block or pattern? Thanks! Karen

    The quilt on the far right with the pink stars is the one that I'm really interested in. Can someone tell me the name of the block?

    All of the quilts are very pretty. The pink star one is my favorite, I have no idea as to the name of the pattern.

    Is it a dahlia?

    Take a look at
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-69489-2.htm

    It's funny I remember it from about 25 years ago so it must be in some of the quilt books because I didn't have a computer back then. When I did an image search the only place I found it was on Amish sites (and the one above) so maybe it's called an Amish Dahlia. For some reason I thought it was a Pieced Dahlia.

    Similar but not quite. The Dahlia has a round center I believe and this has another star.

    Thanks for the link. This is a pretty block but I'm still hoping someone might come up with something. Kind of like a treasure hunt, huh?! ;-)

    Not sure, I've done some searching, as have others, could probably draft it on graph paper if you want. I enjoy doing that.:)

    This is the best I can do with enlarging the star...it may be blurry but hopefully you can get a better idea of what it looks like.

    Enlarged photo of the star...well it didn't get larger as I had hoped.

    It appears to be some type of modified 8 point star times THREE!

    Barbara Brackman has it's name listed as "The Triple Star Quilt" in her Encyclopedia of Pieced Patterns. Can't Find a pattern but it could easily be drawn out on graph paper.

    Well, it's not like any block in Hall & Kretsinger's 1935 book!
    Maybe an original design?

    I don't think this is a triple star like in Barbara's book because of the way the points are on it.

    Hi Karen,

    This is really a beautiful block that you are trying to find the name of. It almost looks like the second star might be appliqued on or something. Very unique for sure. If you find out the name of it please let me know. I would love to try to make one.

    Thanks,

    It would be a good one to paper piece but I don't know how to "make" a paper piece pattern. I wonder if someone with EQ could do it? It's a really cool block and I'd love to paper piece it! :D

    Thanks I am glad Michael liked his quilt. Plus I made sure that you post was seen by DQBM. She was tickled pink with your comments.

    Thanks,

    Karen,

    After seeing this post much earlier today I have spent countless hours looking in books, online and in my EQ7 for this pattern. I hate to say that I have not found the name of this block for you. So the next best thing I recreated the block and here is my version that I will call "Candlequilter Star" and dedicate it to anyone and everyone who has ever used candle light to quilt by. I feel this is very appropriate since the picture that danjfalke posted was of a very old quilt and probably quilted by candle. So here is my version of that block. PM me if you have any questions. I will be working on EQ7 to get directions out.

    Thanks,
    Sherryl

    My version called "Candlequilter Star"
