    Someone posted to this thread that they would like a tutorial in English. I thought I would give it a try.
    When I stacked them, I placed them on my cutting board and used the lines to place them at 1/2" intervals.
    I tried to place the top fold of the stack as close to the center of the background as possible.
    Thanks QuiltnNan for the tip.
    Could a person do this smaller say like with a 4 1/2" square and if so, then how big would the foundation piece need to be?

    OH...my dearest MIL did the same thing - and it looked SO HARD. This is certainly a star to reach for.

    THANKS !!

    Oh Wow!!! Thanks for the tutorial. I saw this before and thought I'd never be able to do it. Now that I've seen this I believe I can. Yours looks beautiful. Thanks again, and again.

    I too was wondering if you could use say charm packs for this.

    I learned to make a folded star Christmas ornament a couple of years ago that is a lot like this idea except you pin the fabrics onto a Styrofoam ball with dozens of pins. The ball is a special high density one so it can handle all the pins without falling apart.

    Wow, FANTASTIC tutorial/directions!!! I had to try it this morning. A little tip: the last color (green one) is going to be the fabric between the arms of the star. I should have made it a darker blue or maybe the same as the fabric that I am going to put this with on the front panel of a tote. . I also took a little stitch in the bottom of each petal once it was folded, seemed to need it to keep it in place.

    Thank you so much dungeonquilter!!!! Great job with the explanation.

    First try with some scraps!

    I can only suggest that you give it a try and see how it works out. You probably would have to move the folds closer together. The size depends on the measurement from the top of the stack to the bottom of the stack times 2 plus maybe 3-4 inches.
