An eight pointed star idea

This is a  photo I took from the Friday hand sewing class last week and it shows a beautiful block that Julie is working on. Using varying types of prints in what is essentially one colour, she's creating a big star block that shimmers. This type of block could be used as the centrepiece for a quilt top, or you could make four and put them in each corner of a quilt top, or I think it would also look stunning on a cushion cover where it truly is the star. I think today will be a great day to stay out of the sun and sew, so I'm going to do just that. Happy Monday everyone!
