This is a Folk Art Star quilt cira 1840-50. Not only is this considered an antique pattern it's also quite contemporary.  This quilt will be made using your sewing machine so be sure to bring along your machine, cutting mat, cutter, thread and fabric.  When I was at the retreat with Linda some of the gals were making this quilt and it was going together really fast.  This would also make up as a good scrappy quilt.  I could make it using all my batik scraps!!!!
