Paper Piecing Monday

Well it is Monday….again, which means another block  to add to  my paper piecing star quilt.  This week I opened Carol Doak’s  50 Fabulous Paper Pieced Stars and decided to make the first star I came across (actually the first star in the book), the Alabama Star.

Paper peicing star block 13

I loved the boldness and simplicity of this star.  I used scraps except for the dark inner star – I wanted that to be the same fabric for some reason!  This really was an easy pattern using just 56 pieces.

Now there are only 7 more blocks to go before I call it quits on the red/aqua quilt…. not that I am counting!

  1. Loving the Alabama quilt square! I also saw you were a Friday Favorite over at InColorOrder and I was so excited because I saw the grey and yellow square and immediately knew it was yours. Love your work.
