Star Design Always Popular
This fascinating Twinkling Start is one of the more popular of the old-time quilt designs. It may be made in two colors and white or every block may be of a different material. However, the former method is more attractive, especially if the old time turkey red, bright greens, or gay yellows are used.
Several Ways Suggested to Set Block Together

By Edith B. Crumb

Anyone who likes a star point pattern for a quilt will readily admit that this is just about the most attractive design of that type that she could possibly find.

It is an old, old pattern and sometimes called "Eccentric Star" but then, you know, some of the old time patterns had as many as 13 different names.

There are only three kinds of patches in the whole block, a square, a triangle, and a diamond and as you study it you will see that there appear to be cubes in the design as well as stars and star points.

You may use two colors of material and white for this pattern or you may use up all of your scraps and have all kinds and colors of cotton materials. This second method is used but is really cutting, sewing, and joining of this quilt and if carefully followed, there should be no trouble in setting the block together.
