How About this Piece of Fabulous?

This caught my eye on Ebay.  It looked like it would make a nice little tree skirt for a feather-type tabletop tree.  I'm enjoying it now on my kitchen table for a while, though.  Did you notice that the center is a seven-pointed star?!  I didn't until it arrived, and I really studied it.  That makes it even more fun, I think.

How About it?!
it is lovely. I wonder what the heck angle to you need to sew to get a 7 pointed star?
I love the colors and I'll bet it makes a lovely table topper.
So, will you cut it for tree skirt? or use underneath?

What an interesting piece. I had to count the center pieces twice. Wonder what happened. Maybe the maker cut the pieces too large.

That would take some math and geometry to figure out a seven pointed star. What a great find.

Sweet......nice colors and looks like lots of quilting too...how are the edges finished? Do I see some fraying there? Is it an old piece?

Thanks for sharing your new piece of fabulousness :0)

Happy Sewing

What a great find. I wonder what it was in it's first life? I love to study them, too.
