The stitching of the "field of stars" is now finished, all eight stars. (I still have to remove the tacking.)
No 7 is nothing like the pattern. I made a mistake and kept changing it.
No 8 is perfect, not one error. (I finally got it right after all those attempts.)
Now I have to assemble them. I am now starting a trial of what I think I want. It is rather like a round pin wheel on a string. The join is going to be the challenge. This is the backing fabric which was a gift from my friend Angela. I have been waiting for something special to use it on.
