Filled with the popular star motif. Five permenant plastic templates are included. Feathered Star, Christmas star, Bethlehem star, broken star, linked Stars, December star, and many more.
Detailed easy to follow text explains how to form each block and provides basic instructions for the beginner. The blocks can also be used to create pillow covers. A wonderful collection

My opinion is neutral. Plastic templates included. Easy to read instructions.
I'm posting it - not because I don't do stars but because I think there is an easier way.
Instead of cutting the pieces out - thus having to sew on the cut bias, I prefer to do the sew half square triangles then trim to fit the exact shape I need.

This wastes some fabric, but the pieces come out much better since there is no stretch caused by sewing on the already cut bias.

If you hand cut the individual pieces then hand sew them, then you absolutely need these templates.
