I had really wanted to do a star, so I began playing around with various reds and b&w stash pieces. These are not colors I generally work with, but I really like the liveliness they bring.
When I finished the star, it was only about 10.5″ square. Hmmm, how to add more size without taking away from the star. Viola! Made fabric strips on the edges! The fabric edges did make it busy, so I added the black ribbon and it works. I’d like the star to be a little more pronounced, but it’s still fun as it is.
Hope my secret buddy likes it!
