Who knew that one star could take so much time? This is my first feathered star and it hasn't been too bad but you know what was the hardest part? The stupid Snowball in the middle!! I am not exaggerating when I say that I did each of those corners at least twice! After re-doing one of them 4 times I resorted to taking off the corner pieces, leaving them how they were ironed with the 1/4 seam, and laying them on top to MARK where the dang seam should be!! It still didn't come out perfect but I was so fed up that I said, "forget it!"
I know it is easier to use a square for the corner than a triangle and let me tell you, the next 3 stars are going to be done that way. I have the Marti Michell templates that make the star and it has those double-cut corners where you line the flattened points up. I didn't just do a square in the first place because of those corners.
