I knew this was going to be a big topic, but I was surprised how big. How to narrow it down?! My original plan was to find all the different block names associated with each star. I quickly threw out that idea! The number of names applied to any give blocks was just a bit overwhelming! So instead I grouped them together by how they are made.
But even that doesn't really work - any pieced block can be machined or hand pieced. Many can be be foundation paper pieced. Some can be machine pieced or English Paper Pieced! I guess it all depends on your preference, your skill level, or the pattern you're following.
Take a look and tell me what you think. What stars have I missed? Laura has already mentioned the LeMoyne Star - that's a challenging one! Anyone have a cool way to piece this without the dreaded puckers from badly made Y seams?
What's your favorite Star block? And what is you favorite way to make it?
