This paper pieced star is dynamic, with the impression of curves when only straightLucky Star Table Runner lines occur.  I would never attempt these crazy angles without paper piecing!  Ours is done in fall themed fabrics, but Christmas or any other grouping would look great too.    Make a 3-block runner or a 4-block wall hanging.  Some paper piecing experience helpful.  Intermediate level.
