Give Me The Stars

 While I was busy making my little Nativity wall hanging, I decided that I would go ahead and make some stars with the paper piecing pattern from Kristy at Quiet Play.

I thought that I would play with them a bit and alternate the colors.  I wasn't quite sure what exactly I was going to do with the four stars, but I thought they would make a pretty pillow to set on our couch.  I usually pick subdue colors, but why not try something different.  They are definitely not the traditional Christmas colors.

It is all finished up, and it matches well to the Nativity wall hanging. I have finished both for the

Sew Seasonal Blog Hop

Two finishes in a week!  Yeah, but still not finished with my Christmas afghans

Thanks to Madame Samm for my new signature. (I love it)
