Sewing stars has to be one of the most satisfying things to make!
There are a wide range of star styles available, from quick and easy, to the more technical paper pieced ones.
A particular favourite star of mine is the wonky star!

What I love about this star is that every one you make is unique, because of the organic/imprecise way that the star is put together.
With this is mind, it is a great project to teach folks who haven’t attempted stars before, and want a gentle introduction to sewing triangles and working with bias edges.
The project I’ll be teaching in August is a Wonky Star cushion (18″), combining the wonky star block into a cushion.
The cushion has a discreetly hidden zipper (another great wee technique to learn) and I’ve designed the cushion so that you get a positive/negative effect from your 2 chosen fabrics.
Smaller projects like cushions are also a great way to try out different quilting techniques! You can even quilt the front and back differently, getting 2 cushions in one!
There are still a few places available on the Wonky Star cushion class. If you fancy having a go at this really fun project, drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively, you can buy the pattern here and have a go yourself!
