The most frequent question I get from readers of my blog is where they can buy the pattern I used for my Christmas Stars quilt. The problem is, there isn't a pattern. I designed the quilt and though I have a tutorial for the block (variation of Ohio Star, finishes at 10" square), I've never calculated how much fabric you need or any of the other elements that go into writing a pattern. Maybe when I retire from my other job...
I made the blocks from fabric in my Christmas fabric bin, using one white tone-on-tone print for the background of all the blocks. I carried that fabric into the border, which makes the blocks the center of attention. I used narrow red binding to finish the quilt.
Linda Hrcka of The Quilted Pineapple did the quilting, which is absolutely fantastic. I especially like the feathers in the borders.
Here's a close-up of one of the blocks. It is easer to make than it looks; check out my tutorial.
