Better late than never….

Paper piecing Monday just did not happen yesterday. After spending 5 days celebrating Russian Christmas with friends at Hood River we got home late last night and I just could not get my act together enough to post.  I blame the vodka, the lack of sleep and the rip snorting good time I had.  So without further ado here is Paper Piecing Monday’s latest block…

free paper piecing blockI like the pointy light green spike behind the dark green star.  I used the lightest greens for the background points so they almost fade into the sky….

quilt block piecesI branched away from the triangle blocks this week and went with simple square components.  You can find the free pattern here….Star petal  I promise the PDF has a numbered pattern, unlike the one in the photograph!  I once again blame the vodka!

  1. Thank you for the star petal(27 January2015) not sure if its the vodka but the pdf is not appearing when link is clicked! I really enjoy your posts and have enjoyed those stars I’ve made so far. I really like the look of this one.

    • Shirley. If you are trying to link from the email there might be an issue. You should be able to click the link from the website…I just did some test runs and it worked. Let me know if you can’t access it and I will send you the PDF.

  2. Love this block ~ I’m trying my hand at improv and want it to be all stars ~ this could work (yes, I’m controlling it a bit)! So glad you had a great time!

  3. I love your blog and star patterns, but there were no numbers on the one I printed out. I can figure it out, but some people may be confused.  Kathy

    • This block is a 12 1/2 inches unfinished for a 12 inch finished block. Make sure that you download the pattern and when you print that you are NOT printing scale to fit. Always measure the paper pattern before you start seeing to make sure it has printed the right size.
