The large aqua star is the one I had left over from the first quilt. As I was playing around with the scraps of fabric I had left, I decided it needed a couple of friends so I made one and half more stars. Improv piecing like this is so fun because you never really know how things are going to turn out until it's completely finished. It really pushes you to keep going until it's done!
I first considered quilting this with vertical wavy lines, but then decided that didn't match the straight edges and sharp angles of the stars. So instead I quilted about a 1/4" away from all the stars- I love how this exaggerates the points of the stars.
