pastel batiks

My small group gives each other fat quarters for our birthdays--I try to put them into my next quilt. This one I made 2 years ago for my daughter, Eve. I had asked for pastel batiks. It is a pattern from Judy Martin's website. Judy included a slide of my quilt in her cd-rom Stars and Sets.
The quilt has several of my "ghost blocks", made in low contrast.

Lynn -

I love this quilt. What is the pattern called? I have been looking for a pattern to make a friend a quilt - and that just might be it.

Hope things are going well with your family.

It is a simple I think 6 inch variable star block with an off-side double sashing of 2 1/2 inch strips with a four patch in the corner. The first border is four patches, followed by a wide batik multicolot.

No, it is a 8 inch block
