    I would probably applique the star on background material! It is beautiful!

    EDIT: Since you haven't sewn the star points together yet, could you put your background material on the sides of your star points and miter them together?

    It looks like it would still work. Just sew one half together (3 parts) then
    do the same with the other side and add them together in a straight line.
    Hope I explained this well. Should work fine and you will have a nice lone star.

    Edit: I think you will have to do some math or use graph paper to figure
    out the angles for the setting triangles.

    The classic 6 Point Star is the Star of David. Yours is unique, haven't seen this before, maybe you can be the one to give it a name.

    If you continued in the 60 degree idea, would putting in 2 60 degree triangles work on each side indent? You would end up with a hexagon shape? Would that be easier to continue?

    Star of Bethlehem is the same pattern as a Lone Star. Two different names for the same design.

    Yours is quite pretty no matter what you call it.

    If you did a triangle - that was 30-60-90 degrees you should be able to sew them to each side of your diamonds before you sew your diamonds together - and avoid y seams.
    Or if you wanted one solid triangle the large angle should be 120 and the two small angles 30 degrees

    This also looks like the Blazing Star block. You could come up with an extended name unique to your own design. Love the color combo.

    I would think you can call it a Lone Star. A Lone Star is a single star, and that is what you have. You can name it Six Point Lone Star. That would work. I think it is beautiful.

    Very nice. The colors flow well. I'm guessing it need to be bigger so what goes around next?
