Star Ideas Wanted
« on: January 22, 2017, 06:55:02 PM »
I want to make a star quilt. Not just a star but something dramatic since it's for my sister. I'd also rather not paper piece one right now.

Any pattern ideas would be appreciated and your opinions of the pattern.

I'm giving serious thought to this one but it's not quite what I'm looking for.

Jinny Beyer has a star quilt on her site that was a BOM last year.  The pattern is a free download.

If you didn't want to fuss with her pattern, you could do the one you showed, but in Beyer's colors.

Do you have any idea as to what direction, you're thinking?  I think a large feather is an awesome statement. 

I have no idea what's going on, but I can't copy and paste a link.  GRRRRR  New computer is kicking my butt.  I googled feather star quilts and the different images great.

VP, that pattern and the fabrics never cease to awe me, that quilt just "glows". That said, I agree with Stewy on Hunter's Star, maybe with some of the colors in Jinny Beyer's quilt.

I do love the Hunter's Star but find the pinwheel surrounding it distracting. I Googled and found an example of one that was more subdued but now I can't find it. I'll search again.

I just now saw this thread.  When I read the title of the thread, before I even thought twice, my mind went straight to this block.  I have always known it as December Rose.  This was one of five beautiful star patterns that I included in my first bed sized quilt.  I called the quilt My Five Star Quilt because I repeated five star patterns throughout.

Zipit - I just completed a block and thought of you.  Connecting Threads has a free BOM pattern that can be downloaded.  The first block is a very attractive star with a completed size of 9 1/2".  It came together nicely and accurately.  Just throwing out this possibility.

I'll have to go look for the book I have that has a different star for every state.  There are 50 different blocks, one for each state.  I thought I'd make a quilt someday with a star from each state I lived in plus the states my mom and dad, husband, sisters and brother lived it.  That would be enough to make up a quilt.  I'll go find that book and give you the name of it and some pics of some of the states if you're interested.  That way you'd have some variety in your quilt.  Personally, I get bored with making the same block over and over.

I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!
