This is my first paper pieced project. Dan Burke of Quilting by the River taught a class at a retreat and this was a tree skirt pattern of his that he taught. I fell in love with just the star pattern that I did not fill in between the points to make it a circle and kept it just a star shape. I used the pillowcase method to finish it. I backed it with a cotton fabric, and used a flannel fabric in the middle so that I could turn the points out. Batting would have been too bulky and stiff to use to pull the points out so that they look nice. Quilting this was challenging also, because I had to quilt it once it was all put together and pulling the points through the machine took a little bit of time, but I tackled it and it came out pretty cool.
