G6 – Papa’s Star

G6 – Papa’s Star
G6 - Papa's Star G6 - Papa's Star Center
This one was a little crazy. The center star is so small, but I managed to do it all by machine. For the points of the center star I actually made small flying geese that were about 2″ wide so that they would be easier to sew, and then I cut them down to size (only 1″). I marked my sewing line on everything and then was careful to match the lines. That part was difficult because it was just so small.

Then came the outer star. I traced the pattern and basically paper pieced it in sections… that was all a bit confusing. I managed to get the center star crooked from how I wanted it, but it is definitely good enough for me!

In my determination to find Bible verses that somehow relate to the block or vice versa, this one was pretty easy. It’s called Papa’s Star… so I’m thinking God the Father. It’s a star, so maybe something that mentions stars. And it’s difficult, so something that talks about God’s power. I think this was one of the verses on that 100 best verses to memorize page I mentioned.

It’s Psalm 147: 3-5
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.
