This week's Friday Flaunt

The blue star is a Christmas decoration a few groups are making Christmas decorations for the Bush fire survivors, started with the quick and easy hanging
The polyhedron star or Victoria's star is one 1 started 2 1/2 years ago and finished last Sunday. The pieces have travelled all round Australia with us but I couldn't find it, the packet had slipped down the back of the wheel cover under the seat in the caravan, found it when we unpacked the van. Over the past month I have tutored 2 workshops to make Victoria's star. The star was first made as a pin cushion about 4" high, the pin cushion was a memento to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee as Queen it is made from 60 diamond shapes.

The hexagons are a WIP getting ready for a workshop in October not sure of the lay out yet as this is our homework, the finished item is a bag.

Very impressed with Victoria's Star... must give that a go .. when I have a lifetime to spare that is. By the way is it paper pieced?
