Star points...........

It took me three times as long to decide which 2 fabrics to use than it did to cut and sew them.  I haven't sewn the seam between the star points yet.  Next I need to cut the squares for the 4 patches in the corners.  Check back here to see what I am making.
The book says we are cutting the pieces over sized so they can be trimmed to be accurate.  It was pretty close as you can see from the teeny tiny trimmings.

It is beautiful. Colors are great.

The points of the star are so unusual. Making them with rectangles instead of squares gives a whole different look. Love the colors of them.

I am a bit curious as to the size of the block also.

That is a pretty block, and I love the fabric combination. The star points are not at a 45 degree angle, are they? Love the effect they have with that different angle.

Those are some fun fabrics. You have a circle theme going on. The variation of the scale of the prints is making this work as well as the color choices. I can't wait to see how this evolves!

Yesterday must have been the day to have challenges picking fabric. I spent a lot of time picking out six fabrics for a lone star. Lay some out, leave them for while, go back and look, change a couple, leave them again, etc.- you know the routine-
but now the fun of cutting and sewing!

The sewing is the easy part. The design, colours and combinations need time! I get all stressed, when I try to mix and match, takes me ages!

It may have taken longer, but it definitely makes all the difference.
