I drafted this simple 5 pointed star as part of a Red, White and Blue Blog Hop for SewWeQuilt.com. Although my project was inspired by red, white and blue this star would be cute in any color combo. I can even imagine it with a gold star on a black & white background, just like you would find on an actor's dressing room door - perfect for the bedroom door of your little star!
Only very simple instructions are included. Some knowledge of paper piecing is required.
***The pdf has been updated to include some helpful hints on placement of your fabric & color planning.
I needed a block for a NASA quilting challenge, and wanted something beyond a tradition star block. This is my first attempt at paper piecing and the pattern was easy for me to follow. I had to enlarge the pattern to fit the size block I needed, but it seemed to work out just fine.
This block is now part of a traveling exhibit being featured around the country! Details here: http://cindy-campbell.com/?p=1875
