Esteemarlu asked about the toile quilt pattern. Here are the two blocks. One is a Snowball block and the other is an Evening Star with Pinwheel (according to M. McCloskey's Block Party book. They are 12 inch finished blocks. The corners of the star block and the center pinwheel are a blue print that is different from the toile. The background of the flying geese star points are toile, so they blend into the Snowball block and make it appear on point. The Snowball corners and the star points are an indigo print. The pinwheel center is a different navy print. They actually could all be the same blue. or even a scrappy variety. This was in a McCall's Quilting Magazine, December 2002. Theirs was red on white toile and called Holiday Elegance.
