Star Quilts II. Published by Thriftbooks. this is apparently the second quilting book with patterns from the kansas city star newspaper archives of the 30s-40s

Star Quilts II. com User, 9 years ago. This pattern book has redrawn old patterns from the Kansas City Star newspaper in such a way that they are 12" blocks and also gives modern ways of constructing them. It is a useful place to begin seeing how these old patterns, perhaps some in your collection, can be modernized and yet still keep the feeling. this is apparently the second quilting book with patterns from the kansas city star newspaper archives of the 30s-40s. now, in my opinion, just because a pattern was printed in the 30s does not necessarily make it a '30s' pattern-after all, a log cabin or lone star pattern printed in a magazine today is not.

  • Great Book, lots of quilt and quilting ideas!

  • This pattern book has redrawn old patterns from the Kansas City Star newspaper in such a way that they are 12" blocks and also gives modern ways of constructing them. It is a useful place to begin seeing how these old patterns, perhaps some in your collection, can be modernized and yet still keep the feeling. I am incorporating some of these in a project just started and attempting to redraw some in my collection.

  • Easy to follow directions, I like the fact that it has patterns from the past. We are using this in a quilt square block class I am taking.

  • look forward to making the applique quilt. This will be my project for the year, There are over 40 of us making the same quilt.

  • Pretty and informative also

  • Good information

  • this is apparently the second quilting book with patterns from the kansas city star newspaper archives of the 30s-40s.

    now, in my opinion, just because a pattern was printed in the 30s does not necessarily make it a '30s' pattern--after all, a log cabin or lone star pattern printed in a magazine today is not a 21st century pattern. these basic patterns date to the 19th century. many of the pieced patterns in this book also date to the 19th or very early 20th century, but were printed in the k.c. star in the 30s. happily for me, there are several pieced patterns that have the flavor of the 30s, whether variations on tradition or originals.

    the reason i am keeping this book in my too large quilting library is because, in addition to pieced patterns, there are twenty fabulous applique patterns from 1930 which are completely 30s in design.

    there are some very nice aspects to the presentation of the patterns: a setting is shown both straight and on point (i first thought this was unnecessary, until i realized how convenient it is to see both side by side), there is a section showing various combinations of the pieced patterns, and there is a color picture of a newly sewn block and sometimes a complete quilt to illustrate the individual pattern.

    unfortunately, the updated cutting instructions too often substitute half-square triangles for square-in-square patterns. i don't understand why contemporary quilters are considered less competent than those in the 30s.

    there is a section of quilting patterns from the 30s included, and some are wonderful, but all are good. there is a two page section on making a quilt. good luck to absolute beginners!

    each pattern is also paired with a short article or advertisement from the day it was originally published. these were very interesting, too.

    so, taken all in all, there is a lot of value in this book. i gave it four stars only because of the inclusion of so many traditional patterns that can be found anywhere.
