8-pointed wonky star quilting motif

28 07 2014

Several people have asked me how I stitch the wonky 8-pointed star shape as shown in these quilts:

It’s really very easy — you go from the middle of one side to its opposite corner, then to the opposite middle, then the opposite corner etc. until you get back to the beginning. It’s easier to explain in a simple diagram!

You can start at any mid point or corner point — in this diagram I’ve started at a mid point. Follow the arrows and the numbers (1 to 8) to create your own 8-pointed slightly wonky star!
