Modernistic Star by Jeannette Dean Throckmorton, 1943
in the Joyce Gross collection, Winedale Collection at the
Briscoe Center at the University of Texas.

When I was designing hexagon blocks for the Morris Hexathon Quilt Along a few years ago I thought about including this pattern, but quickly decided that it would be pretty challenging in a hexagon 8" across.
Block by Carrie Hall in the collection
of the Helen F. Spencer Museum of Art
at the University of Kansas.
It's about 20" wide.
You can see her beautiful seams.
She was quite the stitcher.
It's 268.5 in BlockBase, given the name Modernistic Star
by the Aunt Martha Pattern Company. I can see in my BlockBase
index card that I've got typos in the pamphlet name.
Should be Prize Winning Designs, 1933.
Here's the source:
The quilt is pictured on the cover---some young thing is showing
her new quilt to Aunt Martha who seems to be pleased with the design.
See that Aunt Martha catalog here at the Quilt Index.
But don't look for the pattern in there. I couldn't find it.
However, BlockBase will draw it any size for you.
Here's one the Wyoming Quilt Project found. No maker's name
given but she seems to have followed the Aunt Martha pattern down
to the borders and colors (I color corrected their very pink photo.)
And see Jeannette Throckmorton's pattern for her version. She drew it herself and she appliqued some of the points.
