The North Carolina quilt project recorded this
quilt attributed to 1959 and Maggie Hewitt of Chesapeake
It's a well-balanced design. The project gave it the name
Double Star Flower Variation---placing it in this rather
small category of 8-pointed stars with points in an unusual symmetry.
Encyclopedia of Pieced Patterns & BlockBase: #388x
Although it's not actually in there as a published pattern
I imported that first star above into EQ8, changed the corners and added pieces.
Voila! Except for those 8 seams meeting in the center it's a good design.
Wait a minute!
I can fix that with a little applique.
Here's the pattern for a 12" block with templates & rotary cutting for the triangles:
Spider Web Star
Print on an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of paper.
Check the inch square for accuracy and adjust if necessary.
Dots a good solution.
