Cute little star blocks

This past year I made 3 Day and Night table runners from Eleanor Burns book. There are leftovers that she tells you how to make a bonus runner from. So in the cleaning up of UFO's I dug them out and made the star blocks. Aren't they just stinkin' cute at 5.25"!!

You pair up these slanty pieces'''
 To get this star point...
 Sew four together to get this star

And trim down to 5.25" 

There are leftover triangle pieces and you sew 8 of them together and you get this kaleidescope block, I still need to sew on the outer 4 triangles to finish them up. 
But here is the thing I don't really like the look of the bonus one she shows and I am trying to think of something different-any suggestions?????????
Linking up with Lorna at Let's Bee Social and Freshly Pieced WIP wednesday.

  2. Wow - how *do* people figure these things out? I could never engineer strategies like this. What is the name of the book? Maybe a surf session on Pinterest could spark inspiration for the bonus project?

  4. I don't have any suggestions for you as to what else you can do with other triangles but I LOVE your bonus little star blocks!
