Civil War Quilts - Block 2

This week's block is the North Star. It's known as many names including Aunt Eliza’s Star, Variable Star, and Sawtooth Star.

This is one of my favourite star blocks. It goes together really quickly and I think it always looks great. This week's block was inspired by this crib quilt in the collection of Historic New England. This could work in a monotone scheme or a great way to dip into your stash for a lovely scrappy look. Aah, the possibilities!

Pattern: Civil War Quilts - North Star
Designer: Barbara Brackman
