Paper Piecing Monday

For this weeks block I present Carol Doak’s “Montana Star”, another fabulous pattern from her  book “50 Fabulous Paper Pieced Stars“.  Yes I am addicted.  Yes I should move on, but when there are such great patterns to work with it is hard.

This block is a nice simple pattern with just 56 pieces that make up the eight parts to the block.

Making this block was not without its “issues”, though.  I may have had a slip of concentration during construction – I am not sure if I can still blame jet lag.  The result was this interesting block section and a lot of unpicking…

I maybe onto something with this mistake….it could make for an interesting quilt.   I will however, leave experimenting with this for another time.
