The butterfly kaleidoscope stars were in the back of my mind the whole time I was working on Springtime in Paris. So as soon as the piecing of it was finished, I printed a few more sheets of diamonds to make the final 16 butterfly kaleidoscope stars.
And once again, I cannot pick a favourite! Although I really love the centre of this one.
Or is it this one?
No, maybe this one.
Oh, I give up. There’s no way I can choose a favourite. I’m just going to show them.
They are each a bit of a surprise when stitched.
Because even when laying them out to stitch, while I have an idea how they’ll turn out …
… I don’t know for sure until the last stitch is taken and the little star is together.
And I think I spend more time deciding which end of the diamond will be in the centre than it takes to stitch each star.
Phew! Eight more to go, which I’ll show tomorrow, and then I’ll start sewing them together into the top. Yesterday I even printed some of the shapes I’ll need to start doing just that.

I’m not quite sure what Baxter’s look says.
