Madison Star by Nan C.
For the free block of the month I am doing in 2014 at my Civil War Quilts site I thought up new variations of stars. The star in a star above I named Madison Star after Madison, Indiana. See the story and free pattern:

I Photoshopped 25 of Terry's to make a digital quilt.
And here are nine blocks alternating dark backgrounds and light.
The blog readers have gone in many different directions with this star. Below are
examples from our Flickr page:
Note Rachael added a seam to the edge pieces
to avoid Y-seams there.
Above is one posted at Sheryl's Temecula Quilt Company blog
And Dustin's all ticking version
I love this collaboration. I think up hard blocks. You good stitchers sew them!
I added this paper foundation pattern for the star point. Be sure the box prints out 7" square.
