The challenge was - adventure. And I tried to meet this by adding fabric - I don't normally like adding fabric and I don't like added fabric to my blocks so that was tough to get around. And the geometry of this block nearly did my head in and I had to have two gos at getting the template right. Now that I've done it, I think it was really easy and I'd like to do one for my L'Amour quilt but this template is 12" and that project is 10" blocks and I'm not sure I want to try redrafting up the template again!
I'm very happy with how it turned out. I think in this year I have mastered getting points to ... well, point.
This is of course a Jinny Beyer pattern. I think I could quite happily only work through Jinny Beyer patterns from what has now become our (mine and my mum's) bible - her latest book. It's called Sunbeam and is an 8 pointed star.
