Christmas Greetings BOM

Another "under the wire" finish for the only BOM I'm doing!! You think I'd get it done at the first of the month, but no I put it off. But even though I put it off, I'm pleased with the results!! I don't have the patterns, I just look on-line and create a 6" pattern from the posted 12" pattern. Then I have been piecing by hand to get all the corners and points exact. I think I'm getting better and more precise - a rewarding "self" challenge!
Just a note of interest - the center star is 3 inches across from point to point and there are 52 pieces in this block!! 

Happy Fall Ya'll

This is a beautiful block, Doniene, as are all of the BOM blocks you have done.
I've lost count--how many is this that you have completed now?
These are pretty complex blocks to be drafting yourself just from looking at the pattern online. I am so impressed. Good job!!
