North Star was designed by Laura Wheeler, whose patterns were sold by mail order by the Old Chelsea Station Needlecraft Company in New York and advertised in newspapers. This one appeared in the Sioux City Journal in 1940, according to Jinny Beyer's Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns.

The Wyoming Patch was in the Ladies Art Company catalog of 1922 as #494. The LAC showed the block in only 2 colors, but we've added a 3rd shade to show the seams. The name Texas Sunflower is from Comfort magazine, according to Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns.
