I have been mucking around a bit with another star - this one is on Wogga block #3. You can see the previous star HERE.
To make this one, draw the six-sided figure on the back of the block (another way to make the shapes to draw inside various sized spanners to make templates).
Run long stitches from each point, with a small join in the middle. Then you have this:
Now, remember I am still experimenting. Then I put Fly stitches around the spokes, eyeballing where they should finish. An out circle drawn on the back may have made me more consistent.
We're up to here:
Then I put a Fly Stitch inside each section:
In this case I tried taking the leg of the Fly just across the centre. It means thee are no gaps, but it gets a bit bulky.
Then I added two opposing Fly stitches in each section.
If this wasn't such a minimalist work I would probably add some rather nice beads at this point.
I'm due to disappear for a few days - back on Wednesday.
