I used this great template from the wonderful Anna at Six White Horses. Thank you Anna!
|Step 1: Foundation piecing the star|
As I wanted to finish the star's edges as opposed to piecing it with a background, I trimmed the edges down to 1 inch, folded and pressed them and then hand-appliqued the finished embroidered star to the back of the quilt.
|Step 2: Trimming the edges down|
|Step 3: Trimmed and ready to press|
As usual, I forgot to take photos of each step. Here is one of the final product being appliqued to my backing:
|Step 6: Applique|
