    Default 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!

    There are no perfect quilts, because I am a imperfect quilter.

    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

    https://www.amazon.com/Quick-Star-Qu...lts+and+beyond

    She writes excellent instructions.

    Good find!

    If you look through the book she uses templates
