My first block swap

Foundation Pieced, eight pointed star with applique.
I have just joined the swap and I was happy to receive a partner who loves stars, red and turquoise. Two of my favourite colours. Tarnyia from WA, I hope you like it.

This is a fabulous star, love the points, what pattern is is?

I have EQ7 and created an eight pointed star block. I printed the foundation piecing for the star, foundation pieced the block and then appliqued a fussy cut octagon in the centre. I usually make 8 pointed stars the traditional way but I wanted perfect points.

The block is beautiful. And the fussy cut center is wonderful. Welcome to the group Quiltjane!!
