Texas StarSeptember 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!
