Ohio Star quilt block

It's time for another Simon Says Stamp challenge at Lily Pad Cards!  Our theme is "Stars" - can you believe I didn't have one single star, other than a wooden button one?  So I decided to paper-piece this Ohio Star pattern. using the traditional red and white.  I made it into a thank you card.

  6. Love this card. It reminds me of my dear departed aunt. I had a stamp ages ago of a quilt square and she wanted to get me quilt pattern books so I could make cards with proper patterns.
