Tiny Tuesday -Sunset Star


This block was a little temperamental.  I sewed the pointy straight parts in the middle by machine and left the center open.  After pressing the seam allowances down I just reverse appliqued the little dark blue square in the center.  I've just never been great with all the angles on inset seams.  The light blue corners got hand pieced at the end. 
It is Midget Block number 44 with a finished size of 4.5 inches and has 21 pieces.  I'm not sure why it is called Sunset Star but I am glad to cross it off the list.
