The Triple Star quilt block looks more like a pinwheel block to me. However, I imagine that the name comes from the fact that everything but the background fabric seems to form a type of star.
Although this quilt block might look challenging, it really is not. The method of construction is what makes it look difficult, at first glance. Groups of quilt patches, including half square triangles and also quarter square triangles, are created and then those groups are sewn together into diagonal rows, rather than the usual straight across rows. This is a fun block to make, so don't be shy to give it a try.
