ABC Wednesday started with Mrs. Nesbitt.
Visit them all.
S is for Star Blocks.
A lot of quilt blocks are inspired by stars. This is a quilt I made of stars for a class I taught. We did a different star each class session. I don't have a space big enough to photograph the whole quilt--this is a scan of the picture taken for the class notebook.Quilters in the class used a variety of colors for their quilts. It was amazing to see each star emerge in different fabrics.
Every star block has a name (or several.) You've seen some of these for other letters. I don't know the name of this one. I probably did at the time, but I can't find it now. Do you know the name of it? Or can you think of one to give it?
This one is a Sawtooth Star. In some places the Sawtooth Star is called the Ohio Star--but most give that name to a different one.
Here is a Little Lone Star.
...which is based on the Lemoyne Star.
Two smaller stars here--a Friendship Star and a 4 Point Star.
A Feathered Star. If you try a Feathered Star, be sure you have really good directions.
Here is a Double Star--also called a Carpenter's Square.
This one is a Byzantine Star. It also goes by California Star.
