A 20th-century designer pattern that was quite popular
after it was published in the Kansas City Star in 1932....
...as Golden Glow, made in gold and white,
according to designer Eveline Foland.
The Star pattern column published it twice.
Foland was rather innovative and she instructed you
to cut the inner petals large and then gather them.
A rework of the pattern a few years later.
Ann at Ann Quilts picked a block apart to see how it was made and it seems to have been the 1935 Star pattern.
Some have more gathers than others.
Carrie Hall's version in the Spencer Museum of Art
at the University of Kansas
This one, recently quilted, was all appliqued.
The pattern remained popular into the 1960s and '70s.
Eight-sided block set with yellow squares.
You could also piece it without gathering the inner petals.
Which is how Aunt Martha told you to do it.
MooreAboutNancy has a good drawing:
Ladies Circle Patchwork Quilts published it as Star Dahlia in 1980,
which is the name a lot of people use today.
