A little progress

I started doing the foundation piecing for the mini (9") feathered stars. After doing two pieces of one point of one star this small I knew I'd never have the patience to do 14 more just for one to the stars let alone for 8 stars. So a rethink was in order.
I decided to do this star which I have always called a feathered star without the feathers. Last night I found it called a Peaceful Star so at least it has a name now. It's the same basic shape as the large one they will surround so it won't clash with it's shapes.

I plan to put them into circles like I did those circle appliqués last week.

Notice how I have extended both the outside squares and triangle so they 'float' within the block.
