    Of the fine quilted goods in the tourist trap shops of Lancaster, PA, we've finally figured out how to make these crazy star table toppers.

    They sell for $48-$98 (small-large) in the shop. (More professionally done obviously.)

    Of course, this thing needs a binding before the whole thing unravels, and I don't know how I'm going to put one on.

    These things take up a lot of fabric, and for the larger ones, weigh up to and over a pound! You have to cut these rectangles and then fold them in half and then fold them into the prairie point and arrange them (more carefully than I did) and work your way out using as many colors as want.

    I'm going to see if I can finish this one and make one for Fourth of July.

    And I have to work full time too.

    :lol:

    It looks beautiful. Good luck on the binding. I'm sure it will be worth the time when you get done.

    That is certainly an eye-catcher!--(you just may have to find a "sick" day or two to finish that one and make yet another for 4th of July---here in CA, we might refer to that as a mental health day......)

    It looks lovely in the blue & white. When you come to bind it, just treat each corner like you do when you miter a square quilt. I did this butterfly one, and it worked just fine.
