    If I remember correctly a board member was at a quilt show and posted some pics of quilts. Does anyone know what the name of this pattern is and where I can find it?

    I want to make this but don't think I can guess what the dimensions are. Thank goodness it doesn't contain Y seams.

    It's a bit of an illusion, but the quilt is all made with HST's. There are no inset/y-seams. You can see how each block is constructed.

    My monitor is acting up so I can't quite make out if the other side of some of the larger HST (the plain side) is made up of multiple fabrics or not.

    But the quilt is a lot easier to piece than you would think at first glance.

    Yeah, could be. This monitor is pathetic, but that outer border doesn't even look pieced. I can't see a break in that fabric at all.
    Maybe those darker rust strips were partially appliqued.

    Can you see a seam there? (I'm going to through this laptop out the window any minute.)

    But the inside star is really a breeze to make.

    You could make it any multiple of four.

    So, for example, the plain dark rust squares in the corners of the star could be 8" FINISHED,

    All those smaller HST's are 2" FINISHED, so the 16 patch next to the plain blocks would also measure 8" FINISHED.

    Or it could be 2.5" / 10" or, if you want it smaller, 1.5" / 6".

    Figure the size of the final quilt will be around 11 times the size of that plain block, including the border: 8" block = ~88" square quilt.


    through for throw???? embarrassing :shock: :roll:

    The center portion reminds me of the "No Diamonds in the Sky" pattern.

    Sure does! ;-) Just stick the stars in the larger blank squares.

    I have to say, though, the color placement/border treatment in the op is really quite brilliant.

    It sure is beautiful! I hope someone finds the whole pattern. Maybe it was an original creation though.

    Why do you need a whole pattern if you can see and find the smaller individual blocks?
