Topsy Star - APQ

Several months ago I was asked to make a block for Patchwork and Quilting's birthday celebrations. They had decided that they would ask people to make a block each and combine these into quilts for an aged care home. The blocks were HUGE... 24 1/2in each. Made it easy to make a full quilt as it only needed four blocks with sashing and borders to make a quilt suitable for the establishment.

I had designed this star for Val who you can see sewing it just here. Val wanted to learn foundation piecing and I figured well why not simply blow it up bigger and use that. So both Topsy and I made the circling geese and then I finished it off while she started on a smaller version.

Looks totally different to what I had in my head :-)
