A love for wonky stars

Hey friends, I hope you all had fun weekends with some crafty time!
Although I'd always heard they weren't difficult to make, I'd never tried wonky stars for myself until last weekend in Birmingham. We're starting our second round of the Wonky Bee this month, and Melissa asked for any radial blocks. I knew it would be the perfect excuse to dive in with some stars.
Chris purchased the 99 Modern Blocks book from a LQS on our trip, and I found a happy little block to try.

Three Wishes block

This is called Three Wishes. As I made each piece, and the block grew, I loved it more and more. I worked on my second block, with no real plan in mind, and came up with a fun pair of stars.

I love this block, too! So, it's safe to say, I'm now a wonky star junky. I made a mini this weekend with more stars, which I can't share yet, but here's a peek.
Oh, yes. There will be more wonky stars!

I'm linking up with Megan today!
