Civil War Quilts: North Star

Besides I was sewing Friendship stars for Mon ami, I made second block for Barbara's CW quilt. Barbara is telling very interesting stories on her blog - I just love to read it! For example this block has been published under many names, including Aunt Eliza’s Star, Variable Star or Sawtooth star.

When I first met this star, it was translated to finnish Kannuksenpyörä (the Rowel). I read about it from the book Tilkkutöitä ja tikkauksia (in english Quilts! Quilts!! Quilts!!!) written by Diana Mcclun and Laura Nownes in 1988. I bought it early years of 1990's and it was my FIRST quilt book!

Greetings from Fenix too;)

I taught beginner quilt piecing using that book!! A great resource. How did you pick up the square to place your BB blocks in?? Do I need EQ7?

I have enjoyed reading your blog for some time. You are quite talented, thank you for sharing your gift and interests! The book you mention was also the first quilt book I learned from, but I am not as productive as yourself. ha!
