Happy Accident

I started playing with this star as a possible entry for the block challenge... then I realized there was a certain size for that. Oops! I kept going anyways... It's about 24" square now and a pretty happy accident.

Hi Victoria,
I recently became a follower of yours.Your quilts are amazing. I love the colors you use. We have a blog too, maybe you want to follow it at decolourant.blogspot.com
If you haven't heard about deColourant, it is getting quite the buzz with quilters. The plain deColourant removes the color of natural dyed fabrics (wool, cotton, silk, hemp, etc.) with ease. The pigmented deColourant not only removes but replaces the fabric with the color of the deColourant you are using. We also carry mists, to form a different effect and clear mixer, so you can create your own colors. We will enjoy viewing what you will create next. Have a good weekend.

I came back to look at that block again. It's really different from anything I have seen.
would you mind if I try making one? I love the star within the star. It looks like it would be difficult to make.

Thanks all! Go for it Beebee!The 5-point star is pretty easy- just slash and sew, like you are drawing one.
