Maja's Christmas Star

My dear friend Maja of Betyipiernaty created this beautiful Christmas Star foundation paper pieced pattern just in time for Christmas. It is a free pattern, so just go over to her blog to download it. She has made a few versions in beautiful color combinations, but in my case I chose a different one. The star stands out dramatically against the dark blue sky.

The star is approximately 12" in diameter once finished. I used the Set in Circle tutorial by Angela Pingel to put the star inside a square block. The star will be inserted in a bigger project, eventually.

The star looks a little bit like a Poinsettia in this picture. The pattern is accurate and easy to make, just a few y-seams when assembling. A truly beautiful pattern, Maja!
