Ahhhh 30--Alhambra Star

Today's Ahhhh comes from Weldon's Practical Patchwork c. 1890

And it was very very difficult.

For the next several we will have a lot of thin, narrow points. I found that glue basting on these narrow points is much better for helping them keep their shape.






Confused yet? 
I decided to color this one in to clarify it a bit better for you.






And here's mine.
It will get a yo yo in the middle because the middle is messed up!
(but it's pretty anyway.)

Now here is a challenge. Look at those teeny tiny pieces! I just found your blog, and I'm very happy to have spent the day catching up on learning all of the candied hexagon blocks that there are so far. Is there a hint of how many you have up your sleeve?
