Now what to do about the star in the corner? Jane appliqued 5 little triangle shapes, surrounding the center pentagon. I decided to add lines and paper piece the star, even though it gets complicated. Yes I avoid applique of small melons and triangles when I can.
Tutorial step one: add lines and convert to paper piecing. Below is how I did it.
Mark which areas are background fabric, and which are focus fabric. Cut shapes a little larger than you think you will need. When done with paper piecing, add lower left piece to central piece, then lower right piece.
Add top piece last of all:
You see I had issues with the background fabric! Sew this last seam. Then attach this piece to the rest of your corner piece.
