Crazy Stars

Discover the "crazy" way of making stars-no precise matching points and no paper piecing. Just layer fat quarters, cut through all of them at once, and shuffle the deck to easily create stunning stars. The crazy-pieced stars in this quilt are a combination of Marie Osmond's Blanc et Noir Fashion prints for Quilting Treasures set off with fuchsia tone-on-tones.
