Very pretty! Is it paper pieced?

No, it was a pattern with two templates. There was a lot of cutting.... there are 48 points, counting the background blue (which has 32), but it was a lot easier than it looks! Except sewing the bits on the edge around the circle of the pillow was a bit tricky.  Cheesy


Um... THAT'S what you consider starting SMALL? I cant wait to see what happens when you really get going. Wink

Starting small?? That looks like a huge amount of work! Everything  is so precise. Love the colors/fabrics too!
