wip Wednesday - Pretty star

Pin It

I need a name for this block pattern I'm working on for the SewLux Christmas tutorials with SewLuxFabric.

It will be up tomorrow morning... right now, the top contender is "Pretty Star." :)

I had a different plan, but this felt more inspired. 


I do not love paper piecing, so I needed to test the pattern to write it up, and figure out the cutting sizes, etc. 
I had this pretty stack I was really anxious to use...


Gah! See??? Pretty star. :)


It took me 3 quadrants to get measurements I was happy with, so I would only need to cut once. :)


Now to stitch it up in this pile! See you tomorrow morning! :)

To me it looks like a 'Little Star Bright'. Very pretty indeed!

I adore this block. It reminds me so much of those expandable sphere toys (http://www.amazon.com/Hoberman-HS104-Original-Sphere--Rainbow/dp/B00000JN49/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1406143209&sr=1-1&keywords=expandable+ball).

So, playing on their words, what about something like "expanding star" or "star explosion"? Or, combine it with the origins of the 8-point star and call it something like "explosion compass" or "direct to you".

I don't like paper piecing either. The star is pretty though.
