What are you most proud of? I'm not the most patient person in the world so this challenging for me. Still have some "oopses" but I'm going to let them go and hope I get better with practice.

Well....it's very pretty and I can't see the oopses! Love your color choice

Wow! I love your fabrics and composition. Lots of movement and the polka dots really set this off! And don't fret, my 1st Lone Star (same block) really set my confidence back. I redid and redid and put it away. Finally got determined to finish it and it came out OK. Sure helped prepare me for this one :D You're right, with practice it gets easier.

Thanks for the kind words - real confidence boost! I need to stop obsessing over getting the points "perfect" because I see in the pic they are pretty dang close. I was also thinking I should have been more fussy on the inner star. And I guess nobody can see the back to tell me that my 1/4" seams are a bit too wide, making the final assembly a bit more challenging.
