Star Puzzle

Maroon Gold Star PuzzleI just finished up this class sample that uses one of my patterns, Star Puzzle, but I have reversed the contrast. Sometimes its good to see what a pattern will look like using different fabrics.

A 3D square, like the 3D bowtie block is the basis for this design and the first step to a Cathedral Window using my method.

Below is a closeup of what the blocks look like at the quilting stage, after the grid is stitched but before any of the folds have been rolled. The finished version is next to it. Intrigued?
