Starry night goes small…

I  struggled this week to find some paper pieced patterns that would give me small (think 4 inches) but interesting stars.  My quilt definitely needs some size variety and I am not insane enough to shrink down one of the more complex patterns to a tiny size…even I have limits.    After a little bit of searching I found a version of this star….

The original pattern is from A Little Bit of Biased’s Paper Piecing Tutorial.   I adapted the pattern a little to add a bit more complexity and ended up with this..

wonky scrap star pattern

The shape of this star is so different from my other stars and it has a lovely wonky feel.   As the block was so simple, I of course had to make two.

What a difference from last week…my complex 100 piece snowflake is followed by a simple 13 piece tiny star.  What will next week bring?

  1. I’m waiting impatiently to see the start of the layout. Smaller stars are a great idea, it’ll help to bring movement to the arrangement, and they are wonderfully individual and wonky!

    • In another couple of weeks I will start playing with the layout again. I need some more stars to really see how it is going…plus my puddly little design wall is full at the moment. Soon I promise Kate.
