As you can see from the photos, I had issues with the pattern not quite being correct and my star points on the outside are not quite 90 degree angles. I have the blue version of this almost finished. i did however, switch colours after realizing the blue was a bit brighter in person than i thought and would not match the house decor. Next time i made this, i will make the squares bordering the star 1/4" bigger and see what that does. This was also my first time doing applique and found the instructions to be quite limited. Thank goodness for youtube tutorials.
