The stars were easier! You just sew the long strips together and then use the template provided to cut the shape. The strips are slightly wider than the template, so all four sides are perfectly trimmed.
Next, the stars are sewn together in pairs, stopping 1/4" from the outside edge. Edyta includes holes in the templates for easy marking. Next step will be setting the log cabins into the stars. Wish me luck! Or at least perfect seam allowances!
