Paper Piecing Monday for #opgivewarmth

This weekend Sarah at nohatsinthehouse.com unveiled the colour palette for May for her charity block program #opgivewarmth.  I was immediately smitten with the possibilities…

To start this process I picked a few of the colours in the palette and a lovely star blocks and came up with this…

  1. Gorgeous block! I’m thinking I may try to make a block this month! She’s not exactly (the least bit) local, but warm & loved kids = a good thing, no matter where they are located! Thanks for posting about it, since I found {no hats in the house} via your blog!

    • Sarah is not local to me but it is such a good cause and I love the challenge of doing blocks to the colour palette. I love a good cause and a good challenge! I hope you get a chance to make a block.

  2. This block is absolutely gorgeous, I LOVE what you’ve done with the colour palette! I do love seeing all your perfect paper pieced stars.

  3. I’m already envisioning a series of borders to make this block the star that it is. You nailed it with this one, and I (and a few local children) will be forever grateful that you’re dedicating some of your precious talent and time to this cause. xo.
