The fabric for the centers of these stars is in the border. This was an unusual star pattern which we had a class on in QBTS .
This is a One Block Wonder quilt which was unfinished at the time of this pic. I have no idea where this quilt is now!! I must have given it away!
This was a purchased pattern which used four patches for the repeating pattern, so only needed four repeats of the fabric but again, it was two different sizes of squares.
