There are 45 pieces that make up this nine-patch block. Most are the size of my thumb nail. It measures 4.5 inches.
It was not hard at all.
Yesterday morning I was ready for work 1/2 hour early. I decided to spend the time working on the 8 remaining blocks. I finished them all in exactly thirty minutes.
Now I have to find a use for these cute little stars. I am pretty sure the two I have done will end up in the points at each end of a table runner.
I am also considering them as the center block for the same star. It would finish as a big 13-inch star with a clone of itself in the middle. I have always admired others work when I've seen blocks like that. Before computers I would never have been able to figure out how to size my own pattern to fit. It's a snap to do with the help of computers so I will most certainly try one of them. It may become a pillow since I really don't want to do a whole quilt. Perhaps I will make a set of new pillows for the living room. I am bored with the current look.
I hope that seeing my projects will inspire you to begin or work on a project of your own.
