    The 2 stars I did a pillow turn as I hate doing binding & attached a ribbon to hang. Did the same on the dahlia but am not happy how my circle turned out...still trying to decide what to do with it.
    I made the folded stars years ago. I put them in wooden hoops when done and hung them up. I really am talking about over 25 yrs. ago. I enjoyed folding the fabrics etc.

    I don't see a mistake. Looks great! I think I need to do some more of these.

    Earlier in this thread a poster said she was going to try and do the Dahlia/star pattern with 3x6 rectangles. The original post was for 6x6 squares and it was very bulky. I made one today and it came out so much lighter with 3x6 vs. 6x6 squares.
