Celestial Star SAL - Month 11 - Starbursts 1-12 November 01 2018
November, the month we give thanks for our many blessings. In spite of hardships, we are still blessed to be alive, have family, be home, have a turkey on the table, be able to sew and enjoy our sewing, and many other things. The photo below shows a crazy quilt block I made celebrating November.
Congratulations to those of you who are keeping up with our monthly SAL. As well as those of you who are simply enjoying sewing your Color Bursts at your leisure. In the past, I hurried to finish and display a piece. Today, I simply enjoy the sewing regardless of when I finish.
TIP for today:
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU FINISH YOUR COLOR BURSTS BEFORE YOU START YOUR STARBURSTS. OTHERWISE, YOU MAY NOT HAVE THE FABRIC CUTS YOU NEED FOR YOUR COLOR BURSTS.
We are now ready to start our Starbursts. I hope you are ready to design your own Starbursts. If you are copying the pictures, you may find that you do not have the same fabric cuts that match mine. What matters is that you look for eight identical cuts in the fabrics you have left. Be original! Using your Magic Mirror will show you what your center will look like. Using a template viewer will help you find another cut.
You will need to make twelve (12) Starbursts for this month, and another twelve (12) next month. They are small and much quicker and easier than the Color Bursts, so have fun with it.
Below are pictures of the first twelve Starbursts and comments on which fabrics I used (fabrics will be listed from the center out). Forgive me if I am incorrect in listing a fabric or two; it has been a long time since I worked with these fabrics and since then I have played with dozens and dozens and dozens of different fabrics.
DON'T FORGET TO ADD THE WHITE OUTSIDE FILLERS IN ORDER TO TURN THE STAR INTO AN OCTAGON.

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving!
