Essex Carpenter's Star Wall Size pattern

The Essex Carpenter's Star is an exclusive Yankee Pride Quilts pattern designed by owner, Judy Thomas  It's a little fussy, and there are a lot of Flying Geese units, but if you like exacting work and a beautiful finish, this is the right project for you. The wall quilt finishes at approximately 44" square.
