  1. Just stunning! I think of this as an heirloom quilt. Can you please share the pattern source.

  2. Hi Caro, thank you so much! There is no specific pattern for this quilt. It was inspired by an antique quilt I had seen. Once it's completed I just may create a pattern from it. Thanks so much for your interest!

  3. I love this and was wondering how big the stars are across, since there is no pattern I am prepared to make my own, just wondering the size of the stars. Thanks for your help. It is beautiful/

  4. I love this quilt!!! A few months ago I passed up the opportunity to buy an antique quilt that was very similar. I am still kicking myself for it! I have printed out some 60/30 grid paper to start designing my own on creams, reds, and browns. I was shocked that I have not been able to find a pattern out there and I don't know how to do the 30/60 thing in EQ. I am realizing that the 6 pointed lone-star like design is pretty rare. Thanks for the extra inspiration!!! I hope you show some close up quilting pics when you haven them!!!!

    1. Thanks Cathy! I did tons of looking online for anything that would give me info on making this quilt and I found nothing. And EQ doesn't have a layout that works for this type quilt. You are right, the six-pointed star quilt is very rare, and I have found out why---it is VERY challenging! Not so much the stars themselves, but putting everything together is very difficult, probably one of the hardest sewing feats I've dealt with in a long time. I never thought about it until it actually came time to sew everything together. But don't let that intimidate you, it is worth the effort. I may have to write instructions and make a pattern after this is completed, although it may be awhile! I am still assembling mine and may design a border, but will post an update in the future. Thanks for your interest!

  8. This is very pretty and I am sure a lot of work. Do you mind if I ask how you are constructing it? Are you paper piecing or doing strips?
