Sometimes...

..You just have to keep on practicing...getting the points of theses stars to match up wasn't the easiest of tasks and as you can see I cheated! I covered them up with an appliqued circle. Sometimes life is just too short. One of the stars was made using the paper piecing technique and the other three just cut and pieced in the usual way, both have their advantages..
The pattern came from this blog...I love Victoria's made fabric technique.




If you would like the pattern for the paper pieced star then you can find it in this post.


Next time I wouldn't make the corners in a contrast  fabric.


It's not quite finished , I have the binding to do but it was a great practice piece...

Fab quilt, those circles in the centre look like a perfect design feature, not a cover-up!
