Wish upon a star seven times over!
Here is a paper piecing sevenpointed star that you could use as a Commonwealth Star / Federation Star.
The pdf file contains the following:
- Two pages with colour options to consider. The examples can help you decide which areas of the pattern you would like to emphasize with colour, value or pattern.
- Colouring page. Of course you can also think up your own colour combinations. You can try them out on the colouring page.
- Pattern drawing with seam allowances.
The pattern needs to be printed 1 time to complete the star
The pdf file DOES NOT contain paper piecing instuctions!
The pattern gives you a star of 6 inches square (finished size).
There is a flickr-group with blocks made with my patterns, called "ipatchandquilt patterns":
Good luck and lots of fun making this beautiful star!
I am a full time Art teacher from the Netherlands. I love quilting and designing patterns, hoarding fabric, spreading loose pieces of thread through out my house and turning out beautiful patterns and quilts!
