I had a fossick around in my stash and decided to make the block using some of my favourites at the moment. I'm thinking I might make it into a pillow for our bed.
Anyway, here's how it turned out:
I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, although do I wish I had changed back to darker thread when I was joining all the segments together. The stitching shows up a little in the middle (as you can see below) but on the whole I think it looks good. Hopefully by the end of the month I can quilt it and make that cushion cover!
I really love the effect of this star but I'm not sure whether I'll make another one! There was a bit of fiddling around and I had to get a little creative when joining my halves together. No-one was more surprised than me when it lined up as well as it does (luckily you can't see the back!) Still, never say never - I may just feel the need again one day.
I have to say I probably saved my sanity in places by sewing the wedges together with a long basting stitch on my machine and checking they lined up before stitching them together with a short stitch. Much easier to unpick that way when you don't get it quite right!
Thanks Anna for sharing your lovely design!
