    HELP - Carpenters Star - is this paper pieced?

    I honestly know how do to a normal Carpenter's star. Actually I have made like 3 of them. Love the pattern. But this one is a bit different. Is this paper pieced? Can some one help me find this pattern?

    This is just so, so very pretty. I would love to make this one. So your help is GREATLY appreciated.

    Thank you!

    I will keep looking and can not guarantee this is the one, at work and my filters keep pic's from loading.

      That's the one Mimi, and it's free. That is a really pretty pattern. Angela Walters did a Carpenter's Star quilt on her Midnight Quilting Show. It's on YT.

        If you click on the link it pulls up a pdf pattern of a regular Carpenter's Star. The one above looks paper pieced. If you ever find the pattern, I would be interested, maybe even enough to try paper piecing!

          No that pattern is for the regular carpenter's star. I am searching for the pattern for the one in the picture I shared.

          I am just struggling to find it. Thought you all might be able to help me.

            Here's a pattern for a paper pieced carpenters star. I think if you cut the pieces from 2 set strip sets it would work. I love the look.

              Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
              it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                I looked for a good while and it's not coming up. It's either paper pieced or using a template maybe.

                  It looks similar to the front cover of the book Quick Star Quilts & Beyond by Jan Krentz

                  She writes excellent instructions.

                    Good find!

                    If you look through the book she uses templates

                      This one isn't paper pieced. It uses templates. You can buy the paper templates or the acrylic templates in the item list. I think Sharon's photo is made with templates too.

                          Thank you all so much. I so appreciate the links. I purchased the book (used) but it will be worth it.

                          I can see some batik purples in my near future.

                          Blessings to you all.
