About the Star in Common Pattern:
There are numerous quilt patterns that portray stars. This seems fitting since their quilters come from rural settings where the sky is wide and work life is affected by the rise and fall of the sun. The lights in the night sky are especially pronounced on the Amish farm with the absence of electric lights. The Star in Common pattern displays a large star in the middle framed by a border and succession of square blocks in cascading colors. The star requires meticulous accuracy in cutting and piecing the small diamonds. A minute error will disturb the layout of the entire design. Please call for questions on our Amish handcrafted quilts. This beautiful quilt is sure to become a treasured heirloom item.
