Big Star



1st block- This is from a pattern out of the Big Star made Easy (there are 14 main patterns and this is the first one). I wanted to try this technique out because I like stars and hate the Y seam--- so I used some scraps (turns out that you need quite a bit of scraps and so I had to do some modifications) the reason you need so much is because it produces the following two squares in addition to the first... or you can just save the pieces for something else. I thought I would try it and here it how it looks so far.



2nd square or what the pattern calls bonus backing...




3rd square or the bonus square.

As you can see lots of material-- not sure I like this idea. This was for a wall hanging can you imagen how much is needed for a queen size quilt? I think I might have to modified... I will think on this.
