Paper Piecing Monday

I am running a little behind today… but I have finally got today’s block done and ready to post.

With this block I am only one block away from finishing up my red/aqua star blocks.  I am going to lay out all the blocks this week and see what I am missing, so that the last block is a perfect fit!  Now for today’s star…

Another fabulous star from Carol Doak’s “50 Fabulous Paper Pieced Stars”, this time I used the Maine Star pattern.  A simple 56 piece star that has a lot of impact.  As I am nearing the end of this project I used more of the scraps I have accumulated over the last couple of months.

Now I am off to enjoy this glorious day.  The sun is shinning and the weather is warm.  In Portland you have to make the most of these days when they come!

  1. I can’t wait to see these finished – I bought the book your using and I hope that I can piece some of these blocks 🙂 I love Paper Piecing Monday – will you be continuing this day with another project when you finish this quilt?

    • Natasha this block and several others in the quilt are from Carol Doaks great book “50 Fabulous Paper Pieced Stars”. It is a wonderful resource with hundreds of star combinations in it.
