I decided to put my own little spin on it though, and use some of the feedsack I've been admiring on my shelf as the background fabric, and add some white to the points to make it "twinkle"!
Since I know of a least one great tutorial for the wonky block, I'll refer you there. I started with 2.5 inch blocks (which will give an end result of a 6.5 inch block) instead of the 4.5 inch blocks that Victoria used in her tutorial.
So, if you'd like to add some "twinkle" to your block, this is what you can do.
Following Victoria's tutorial, right after you have cut your star point squares in half, you're gonna take a little detour and cut eight pieces of your "twinkle" material (I used some white scrap) about 3/4 inch wide and long enough to cover the long edge of the triangle like so:
Angle the triangle on the white fabric however you like (changing this angle will make the "twinkle" different on each point), and using a scant 1/4 inch seam allowance, with right sides together, sew.
Then trim the excess white fabric.
Then press it open and trim back to a triangle-ish shape.
And that concludes the detour folks, continue with following the tutorial like normal and now you'll end up with wonky stars that "twinkle"!
p.s. for those of you that love Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy line, make sure you check back on Wednesday. That's all I'm sayin'.
