A Star for a Star!

My daughter really, really likes stars...so I made a star wall hanging/mug rug for her birthday:



I fastened the ribbon holders on with a pair of starfish earrings. The star hanger I got on the Quilter's Run a couple of weeks back.

Paper pieced...this is about as much paper piecing as my tolerance allows. I must be getting a bit better though, since I did not cut any pieces too small and only sewed one seam with the fabric upside down when my mind wandered a bit..I have learned to use HUGE pieces of fabric for paper piecing, and if I cannot see the right side of the bottom fabric when I am stitching on the line...its wrong!

All star fabric, even the label on the back...

Love that idea with the earrings..so very clever Suze. Your star is beautiful...I was just pp Wild N Goosey 3.5" blocks. Bonnie's pattern from Quiltmaker mag. Once I got the hang of it its not too bad..but it does waste paper, I don't like that part.
