Thank you to all who answered my plea for pattern assistance. There were several great suggestions, but two of you managed to interpret my description and correctly identify that IT WASN’T A STAR BLOCK AFTER ALL!
Funny how our memory plays tricks on us.
Here is the searched for pattern. Thanks to Susan at Patchworknplay for the original design.
And here is the link to Mishka’s post, including a tutorial: http://quiltinggallery.com/2012/06/23/my-next-scrappy-project/
Yep, I’m feeling pretty silly. But, the good thing is that if you are looking for a scrappy star project there are several I can now recommend:
Scrap Jar Stars at http://alittlebitbiased.blogspot.com/2012/01/scrap-jar-stars-tutoroial-giveaway.html This one is now ALSO on my to-do list.
Scrappy Postage Star from the wonderful Emily Bailey (see previous post for more information on her and a pattern GIVEAWAY) http://emsscrapbag.blogspot.com/2011/08/scrappy-postage-stamp-tute.html
Scrappy Stars (currently being hosted as a quiltalong) http://terrytreasures.blogspot.com/2012/07/scrappy-stars.html
