Mysteries

Paula at Coffeetime Quilt Studio posted a very cute quilt that she made few years ago. I made the same quilt at the same time in different colors- it was my very first mystery and I've been hooked ever since :)

Our friend Ann, designed the mystery and at the time she said it would be available for only so long and that was that.

Others wanted to make the quilt and I don't think Ann will give it out since there is another pattern like it for sale
But in playing in EQ this morning and online I was able to redraw it.

Here's a mock up of Paula's quilt :



Here's the 8" finished block for the corner:


The morning star sashing:


Put 2 sashing parts, a corner stone and the 8" block together you get this:

It finishes at 12". All you need to do is figure out how big you want the quilt and make that many blocks and some extra sashing parts......
Quilters Cache has the Morning Star block without the Pieced block but that's easily done with a 41/2" square-4 2/12' X 4 1/2" sashings and 4 -21/2" squares
Here's mine :

Thanks you saved me the time of figuring it out.

That is so cute. I tried once to make petals like that one block but it didn't work out.

Duh, of course thats how you'd make the morning star/petal. Thanks Kim. Good to know. I may try that again. I love to snowball blocks like that.

Oh yours is so pretty! I have never made this one before.

Yes.. I have that Prayers Little Golden Book too.. but it is a reprint and not a first edition, so I didn't show it along with the others. Lots of great memories. :-)

Very cool quilt, and it looks so different in the two different color choices. Thanks for the information, I may give it a try.

Thanks for sharing the info on this quilt. It turns out great and looks far more complicated than it actually is when you see it broken down :)
