Broken Star Quilt - Too Cool!

The Broken Star layout is too cool not to make.



Made into a stool pillow
This pillow has a tie on all 4 corners.

Close up of how stool pillow is tied to the legs

This design is all embroidery thread.

The stitching is open decorative and textured fills.

There is no applique and no piecing in the hoop.

To make the star, simply sew four (4) of blocks together

The layouts for the broken star are shown below.

Denise Lacerta’s 8-Point StarDenise's Stunning 8-Point Star

Denise says this was her first time using spray adhesive so too much of it got on the fabric.

The blue fabric shows through the fills making them more visible - I really like that! I did alot of work coming up with those fills.
