Union Star was first published by Clara Stone in her booklet, Practical Needlework: Quilt Patterns, from 1906. According to Barbara Brackman, this was one in a series of needlework booklets, and as Clara Stone has been widely published in Hearth and Home, many of her patterns were collected together in this booklet.
