Pieced Five-Pointed Star

Paper-pieced star pattern from HotPinkPeonies blog.

Tomorrow's Abe Lincoln's birthday.

Lincoln was born February 12, 1809.

We can celebrate President's month with
a free star pattern you can download at 
Ellen's site.

In my BlockBase program of historical published quilt patterns
I show 5 similar pieced patterns that you can print out
for paper piecing if you like.

 Ellen's original star is more complicated than the older patterns.
Quite a clever design.
