Star ornaments again

Having abandoned my original design plan, I read through some quilting books over the weekend and came up with a better idea.

In The Quilter's Catalog, I saw Sue Benner's "Wild and Crazy Fused Ornaments" project. Her ornaments incorporated bits of fused silk, but I took a simpler route and used glittery quilting cottons, red on one side and green on the other. They are quilted and edged with gold metallic thread.

I kind of like the no-frills look of these, but using a more elaborate print or silks would definitely make them pop a bit more.
