Vary the Fabrics for the Season!
Prairie points stitched to a round base make wonderful stars to enjoy on a tree during the holidays. They will also be fun hung just about anywhere around the house.
Choose Christmas fabrics or make them up for any season. We can imagine these adding a whimsical note to our home all year long.
The ornaments are very simple to make. Just stitch prairie points to a lightly stuffed base and finish them off with buttons and a hanging cord.
Select a variety of fabrics and create an array of stars to hang in a grouping or to display together in a bowl. They also make wonderful gifts.

The tutorial, from Super Mom – No Cape, is for a star that is about 6″ across. Instructions are provided for making them whatever size you want.
The star can be enlarged and hung as a wreath, as was done here by Winding Road Creations. You’ll need to play with the dimensions to get the size you want. This one is 15″ across. The designer often has several of these made up for sale (currently unavailable). Find them here.
Also from Winding Road Creations are mini versions made into lapel pins. They are 3″ across and you’ll usually find some for sale here (currently unavailable).
And, finally, if you’re running out of time to complete your gift list you’re likely to find ornaments for sale here (currently unavailable) by the same designer. This one is 4 1/2″ across.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
