Texas Star

September 22, 2006

I haven’t been spending much time piecing lately; all of my quilting time has been spent quilting with the longarm. So to keep my DSM from feeling dejected I spent some time with it this morning putting together this block. I like to combine traditional blocks. With this one I used a Texas Star and put a Windmill in the center.

I had always thought this star was called an Ohio Star. But Barbara Brackman, in her Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns, calls it a Texas Star among other names. Since I live in Texas… Texas Star sounds just fine!

  1. Cute block!


  2. Sure is puuuurty…


  3. Lovely!


  4. ITs gorgeous and esp since blue is my favorite color. The dark blue is beautiful. Is it a Batik?


  5. A “Lone Star” at the moment. Love the blues, Deb!


  6. Very pretty! I love the shading of the blues.

    I think Ohio Star is turned differently, with flying geese unit toward long side of block? Texans do things their way, I guess 🙂


  7. Good job Deb, I like the pinwheel in the middle. It’s fun to combine different blocks to make a new whole. I like stars with log cabins in the middle too.


  8. It’s a beauty!


  9. Delightful!
