    5 point star pattern

    Does anyone know of a 5 point star pattern that is not paper pieces. I searched and found paper pieced patterns but really do not want to make one that way since I do not paper peice. Thanks!

    Buggy Barn has one. There is one in EQ as well. It is at an angle however. You can also cut the paper pieced ones apart and 1/4 inch seam allowance.

    This is the one in EQ. If you like this one, PM me.

    Because of the weird angles with 5 points, you would probably want to use templates for cutting if you don't want to paper piece.

    Dunstar - is correct - you will need to either do templates or PP if you want to control the placement of certain fabrics in your block. However, if you wanted scrappy, you could do what I call the slice and dice method. Stack multiple squares on top of one another, Make your "slices" with a rotary cutter, Then shift the top layer where the background would be to the bottom and Sew them back together. Just another option.....

    You could always do applique for this as well. Fusible applique works quite well with this design because it is fairly easy to machine stitch down with all those straight lines once you have fused it to your background. If you are concerned about stiffness of fusible use Misty fuse or "window" the fusible product before fusing it to your applique fabric.

    The five pointed star is very easy to PP. Why not try it. There was a time that I didn't PP as well as every other person who now does PPing. You can at least try it on this super simple pattern block. What have you got to loose? You might decide you actually like to do PP.

    I might try PP. That way I could make star as big as I want. MY DD wants a quilt made with red/white/blue with star in center to use as a picnic blanket. Maybe I can talk her into a common star block with square block in center and flying geese making the 8 points. I cringe at the thought of quilt laying on grass but if
    I make dark backing then you will not see the grass stains! A gift is a gift!!!!! Quilts are made to be used!!!!!
