Welcome to part 12 of paper piecing Monday. My husband asked me how many stars I am going to make for this quilt, he was a little scared I was not going to stop!. I decided that 20 was the number to aim for. It will make a 4 block x 5 block quilt which will be a nice size for some kid.
This week I have one of the last compass squares from Quilting on the Square.
The paper piecing pattern can be found here Block_9_Compass_of_Many_colors.
I changed the pattern a little, choosing to use the stripped fabric instead of using another lot of background fabric. I wanted to try and get a star that was a little different from some of the others I had done.
The pattern involves 80 pieces of fabric made into 8 triangles. The finished block is 12 inches (like all the blocks I have posted so far). I threw the stars together to show you a very rough work in progress shot. I am not sure that it all works together yet, but hope as more blocks are added it will start to look more cohesive.
