    Do you know how to make this?

    I saw this star ornament on a quilt shop website as a class they're offering. I wondered if anyone knew how to make it or what the pattern is. I'm terrible at looking at something and figuring out how to do it. I thought I would ask on here before calling the shop

    Looks like a ribbon/paper/straw/palm etc. folded star:

    Looks like some type of folding the fabric or weaving?? Hard to tell by the photo. Did you try Google with a description of the Star??

    You've got 4 squares in the center. The points come in pairs made by attaching a bigger square folded into a triangle on the back.

    I'd have to play with the sizes to know how big the folder square that makes the points would be

    after rethinking----------each color begins as one piece and is folder to make a center square with triangle tips

    I will have to try this. Looks like fun, and something I can do in my lap in the doctor's office, etc.

    Adorable, thanks for posting the link to the tute. Another item on my "to do" list. I've been working on Jenny Doan's periwinkle mug rug in Christmas colors.

    I made one! I found that a needle nose pliers works better than a bodkin for pulling the strips through. Also, I had long enough strips left on one side to make four more points. I just had to be sure the points were on the outside, not in the middle. Then I pressed it under my iPad for a while so that the points would stand up.

    Thanks for the tip on the needle nose pliers, I'll swipe them from my husband's tool box!

    I just finished one, really cute! I'd add a pic but don't know how, I've tried a few times with no luck. Thanks for the tute. Don't know if any of you remember just the braid made with palms from Palm Sunday, my dad used to make them for our family so while I was making the star it brought back fond memories. Thanks for the memories.
