Folded star

folded star3This is a patchwork technique that I hadn’t tried before and I just loved the process and the result.

I used some fabrics from a batik jellyroll so the size of the folded points was determined by the width of the strips, which is two and a half inches.  I found that working to this scale was fine and I like the delicacy of the final piece; it is just five inches in diameter. I think a cushion in this style of work would be lovely, but am a little daunted by the number of points I’d be making by the time I reached the outer rings!
