Somtimes, I need to do simple, straightforward, rewarding sewing.
No "just make it work."
No slaving away.
Just square edges and inspiring fabrics.
This pillow is a product of that impulse!

One evening while perusing a catalogue, I found a shape that I wanted to try replicating in fabric: this mirror. I love the look of outlined stars (evidence: Lone Starburst), and immediately had visions of this new paper-pieced specimen. This new 12.5-inch (unfinished) block, which I call Star Seams, was born.
I tried it out first with some lovely scraps...
The template looks quite neat on paper. However, this block is quite fussy to sew up! Warning!
