    This was a origami stars pattern. All I did was stitch around the stars and border. This was paper pieced. I entered this in the Long Island fair 10/09 and I won second place! This has encouraged me to enter another one this year.

    Nice touch with the decorative stitch on the binding. Did you use turkey tracks? I really like the effect. Great work --- you earned that ribbon!

    I just zig zagged around the stars and the border I think it was a leaf vine. Thanks for your comments.

    Wow, I love your table runner.

    Did you find the pattern online or in a book?

    I just learned to paper piece and thought this would be a cool star table runner for 4th of July!

    Thanks for sharing!
