Make a charming ornament with sharp points to sparkle on your tree this holiday season while learning to paper-piece!
Paper-piecing is a fun, easy way to get sharp points that all line up. Follow the numbers on the paper-piecing foundation sheet and voila! You are done.
Come be empowered to paper-piece the Mini-Star of Light block featured in Christmas RAPPing by Margaret Brewster Willingham and Nan Baker. Learn the tips and tricks to paper-piece like a pro.
Choose 3 fabrics to make your star shine from the highest boughs of your tree. Will you choose classic red, gold & green or Blue, gold and yellow? It’s so fun and easy you’ll want to make a tree full of Mini-Star of Light ornaments, and give them as gifts.
