Pattern Description:

Inspired by a lovely mirror, this pattern includes templates to create a very challenging paper-pieced star quilt block.

Basic instructions:
print 2 copies of the pattern to have 2 templates for each piece, A to F.

Once each piece is complete,

1. join A - B, C - D, and E - F, matching up outside edges and corners.
2. then AB - CD,
3. then ABCD - EF.
(repeat with second copy)
4. Join both ABCDEF halves to form a full star! Match up from the center outwards.
