Milkmaid's Star from Come To The Fair by Edie McGinnis »
InstructionsI fussy cut the eagles to fit in the star points. I fed college ruled school paper thru the printed one at a time for the paper piecing patterns. I used brown and dark green hand quilting thread for the pine cone stenciled patterns that I quilted in the setting and corner triangles. I used off white hand quilting thread in the blocks.

What was your inspiration?
I had about 7 yards of fabulous eagle fabric and I loved. I was looking for a pattern that would use it to the best advantage. The Milkmaid's Star was perfect! Paper piecing made accurate construction of the block easier to accomplish.
