I was looking for something easy but pretty to make for Christmas presents this year.  I remembered a folded patchwork star my grandmother showed me how to make when I was little.  It's pretty easy to do, and it's a nice way to show off fabric.  I used the "Colonial Christmas" fabric designed by Judy Rothermel.  I plan to make a few more of these in the next few weeks out of different types of fabrics.  I think they will make nice table toppers, and because they are so thick you could also use them as a trivet for hot plates.

Very cute.  I have seen these around here or there online but for some reason have yet to make any!  Thanks for the reminder!  I have a sew-in Saturday (come early, sew all day, leave late) and maybe I'll have time to whip some of these bad boys up!

Yours came out very cute Smiley

The sew-in sounds like fun!  Do you lock the doors so no one can get out?  I am glad you like my star Smiley
