I see I made a comment in 2009. Should have thought about looking at your photos.  Its a beauty.  I like the hexagon in between the stars and that it was large enough to add a motif.  Still a long way off from starting one.  I really like the vintage fabrics, not sure red and white would do it justice. I guess I will keep thinking on it, till the time comes. Thanks

This quilt is just beautiful.  The traditional looking quilts are still my all-time favorite.

Just hand stitched. I did it the "old fashioned" way, using templates and marking sewing lines with a pencil. The stars were nice and portable when I was in that phase. It was fun to make a quilt the way my ancestors did. I'm so glad you've enjoyed it.

Is it EPP or is it just hand stitched??? I love it. It is a winner no matter how you did it. Aren't you glad that it is finished? I have added it to my favorites. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I believe it's called Texas star. I recut the 11 original blocks (they were measuring quite differently from one another) using the templates in Linda Otto Lipsett's book "To Love and To Cherish," then drafted the large connecting hexagons since her stars were set differently. It was hand pieced and hand quilted -- took two winters at my pace. I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

What a great quilt. Did you hand piece or machine piece? I would love to find this pattern, may I ask what iti s called?

Thanks! I got 11 vintage blocks at a white elephant sale, and made the rest with reproductions prints. It's queen-sized, hand pieced and hand quilted. Took forever, but I finished this spring!
