Has anyone made this. Was wondering if it was very hard

If you are talking about the Folded Star tutorial on the Moda Bakeshop site, it is not hard once you get past the poorly written instructions. I just finished one, and I made lots of notes as I went along so that the next one I make will go together a little better. The best tip I can share is to cut the rectangles for the outermost two rows a half an inch wider than specified.

I did one last year. I received the pattern with my birthday packages from Thea I believe in 2012.

I've made many of these...but not recently. I bought one at a road-side stand on a trip through the southwest and came home and made my own pattern. I sold them in an artisan's shop in our small tourist town. My design was basically with folded prairie points then hand-stitched (or machine tacked) to a backing in a star shape; then made into a pot-holder. It was time consuming, but not hard at all!
I made several of these a few years ago. They are not hard but they do take a lot of fabric. There are a number of videos on YouTube which should help you along.

Pat, nothing there...

This pattern for folded star hot pads comes with an interfacing template which makes these very easy. The templates are available separately if you already have the pattern. I got them at my local quilt shop and have seen them several places since.
Go to You Tube.com and do a search for Folded Star Hot Pads. A variety of projects for the folded star will come up including the hot pads.
