Working on drafting a 5 pointed star for a quilt

One of the reasons why I picked up a compass & protractor set last summer is for this: I want to make a 5 pointed star for one of my quilts in the "Twilight in the Bronx".  Yesterday I figured it out.  I'd been doing the math incorrectly.  I'd been looking to make the center… Continue reading Working on drafting a 5 pointed star for a quilt
