These 3-D stars are done with fabric over cardboard, and are a variation of English paper piecing. The diamonds are about 1.5" wide, and there will be 60 of them. The star will end up being a little bigger than a grapefruit.
I really like doing handwork, so this has been fun so far. I think I need to add little round bells inside each section since I'm using Christmas fabrics. I have two sections made and have 10 more to go. The little cardboard diamonds are all cut and ready to go, so at least that step won't slow me down.
