Foundation piecing Foundation block piecing consists of sewing pieces of fabric on to a paper or a muslin foundation to form a quilt block. Foundation piecing can be used for creating full sized quilt blocks as well. Using the foundation piecing technique to piece blocks allows a quilter to construct complicated patterns easily and accurately .
Make sure to allow plenty of fabric for each piece.
I have added a link to a good page I found.
Here is a picture of what your block should look like......

Here I have used a light background, with contrasting fabrics. Play around and perhaps try a dark background. You could make the star from just two colours to make it work.
Make two blocks from this pattern.
You will have quite a few blocks now, lay them out around the centre point, as in the final picture. This will help you choose the colours for the final block.
Dont forget to send in photos, so we can all see what you are doing.
