Folded Star patchwork

Folded Star patchwork, originally uploaded by soja.

Trying something new (to me). I wanted something I could do away from the sewing machine. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be to get a good result, maybe because this cotton from Ikea is slightly thicker than quilting cotton, so a bit harder to press the points crisply.

They are small, the white blocks are 5" square, but took hours. I don't think I'd want a whole quilt of them, but I think a few would make a good feature on a quilt or bag. The red, yellow and blue one reminds be of a Primal Scream album cover.
