Oh My Stars!

Now that the Christmas rush is over, I feel I can do some more sewing without guilt. Well, there's always some cleaning to do, and the dogs want a walk...

I had fallen behind in this quiltalong, (see the button on my sidebar), not a good omen since it's only recently started. There'll be lots of time for me to fall behind again!

So last night I made 5 tiny stars with pinwheel centres. They take as much time, no, maybe more time than larger squares. You probably already know that, but it doesn't seem fair.

Each star variation has 1 large, 2 medium and 5 small stars. So I've done the Simple Sawtooth Star and one with a pinwheel centre. 13 more variations to go! I'm excited to see what else we can do with this star!

Here's my collection so far:

Till next time
