What are you most proud of? I actually finished it and didn't throw it in the bin!!!! I just could not get my points right and my seam ripper was on overtime!!! But I am happy with it now although don't look too closely as you will see where my seam ripper was at work.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do not rush this block as you there are a lot of points to perfect... but worth the effort I think:)

PS- Do your scratching AFTER you've resewn the seam so the edges don't fray or unravel.

Thanks Jean for the great tip, I will certainly try this:) I haven't done the paper piecing yet so I will be sure to keep my seam ripper handy;)

Love this one Desna! Like it even more than our August double star. Can't see any evidence of the above confessions LOL... well done you!

Haha Pam... if you look closely you will see where there was sewing. I like this star block better than the August one too. Thanks for lovely comment

Wonderful block, really like your fussy cutting. Your points are great & so are your fabric choices. Thanks ever so much for sharing. :-)

Thanks Pam I love the Christmas fabrics, so many to choose from. It was a bit of a pain getting all the points but wasn't going to let it beat me! I have actually made another similar block.

Desna, have not been on line for a while. This was a nice surprise. Very pretty and one of my favorite stars
