I am still getting back into the right frame of mind to do these samples. For this one, I used multiple layers of fabric to do reverse applique. With the multiple layers, I machine stitched a layer and cut it out and then the next until I got to the yellow center. The wacky cross stitch in yellow stranded cotton almost forms another star layer. Although it is fuller closer to the shape, I stitched an uneven stitching to break it up. I then stitched a dark blue thread over both the blue and the burgundy layers.
