I have what I think is really good news - at least for a few of you. I was talking to Barbara at Jan Patek Quilts - I confess, I've succumbed to this year's mystery - and I told her that there was interest in the Star Quilt since I started posting pictures of my version on my blog. I told her I was sorry that they'd never put it out in a book or pattern form because I thought many people would be interested in having it.
Barbara checked with Jan, and has just sent me an email. For $15 you can get the packet of instructions for the 2003-2004 Girl Gang Feathered Star. None of the extra projects will be included, and there is no colored picture of the quilt. It does include all the instructions and patterns for making the large quilt.
If you are interested either call them at (816) 632-7632 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you click on the link in the first paragraph you will be taken to her website.
You can see my version of the quilt here. No connection to Jan at all - just a quilter who loves her fabrics and designs.
