    And now again: a little layout-play: put the little star to cover the hole. Hm... edges to edges? Or edges to ray-middleline? its your decision!

    Ready? Okay! Now we close the open seams... with (surprise surprise) strips! and casually ww will cover the uncorrect points of the inner ray...

    For the points i make orange diamonds on the same way like the inner little blue star. Sewing grid-diamond on the right side of fabric, cutting the edges, turning over through a cut in the grid. Okay? Okay!

    For the seam-cover stripes you can take bias tape.

    So! The top is ready! Now the star need a backside... When else do you have the opportunities to see the backside of a star...

    We need a big piece of fabric (or four smaller pieces). Cut it so:

    Between the small pieces you sew your label.

    Then you sew the strip to the bigger pieces. Pay attention for a little window to turn over!
    (do NOT pay attention for the strange light on the photo. it was a deep dark night! )

    Now we make a sandwich (its time for meal??? )
    We trim the top (Pic 1)and stitch the batting on it (Pic 2). My batting has a clue-side, i make it NOT to the top! Now we trimm the batting (Pic 3)and arrange the Top (with the right side) on the backside-fabric (also the right side) (Pic 4/5).

    Now sew top and backside together, trim the backside, cut the edges and turn over through the window in the backside...

    It looks like a birth... isn't it?

    Now we make the last steps: Iron your top! (when you used a batting with clue, it will to be clued on the backside). Remove the threads from the stitching. Make a quilting, as you like it (i like a pure one).

    And now in fact, your star is ready! Really? My star is far from beeing ready!
