This is Captain's Wheel for Louisiana. My daughter's friend Bry offered to buy fabric while she was visiting her mom over the summer. We found out afterwards that her mom moved from LA to PA. I'm still counting it as LA.
I love the look of the Dakota Star block but it was a pain to make since all the edges are bias, and the white triangle templates I made aren't quite symmetrical.
Nothing that a little steam and spray starch couldn't fix.
This pattern, by the way, is absolutely delightful to sew. It builds from the center, much like a log cabin does, and ends up looking much harder than it is. I may have a full quilt of this pattern in my future.
