"Shooting Stars" is the name we were given for this pattern in the class I took back in 2010. Another RSC participant, Libby in TN, showed photos of two quilts she is making that use the same block, but her version is called "Wink and a Smile." She said it is an out-of-print pattern by Lisa Christensen.
I discovered that I had saved a photo of another version of this block on my Pinterest account. It is linked to a tutorial at Anyone Can Quilt with detailed instructions for how to make the block.
I have a whole stack of pink and brown fabrics, enough to make a huge quilt of these stars, but I'm not sure I want another pink and brown quilt. What I really want to do with this pattern is make it in red, white & blue as a Quilt of Valor, but that idea will have to wait until another day.
I am sharing with Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times and Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt.
