Paper piecing star overload

So here is my fourteenth green star block…  and I can not believe that there are so many already…

lonely star quilt blockAs promised it is more complex than last weeks with  32 pieces but still less than some of my bigger star blocks!

quilt block piecesThe free PDF for this star can be found here…Lonely Star Pattern.  If I was to make this star again I think I would alternate the light and dark greens more, as you would in a traditional Lone Star quilt.

Oh and as promised here is a shot of most of the stars so far (12 out of the 14)…

a collection of starsI am still not sure what I am going to do with them all but a plan is brewing…. I was really inspired by the QuiltCon quilts I have seen on Instagram…so there will be negative space and an off grid layout I think!

  1. i love them even more when seeing them all together. I think they deserve to be a full quilt with negative space and sublime quilting. Glad to see some dots but the muted background is wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

  2. These are phenomenal, Cath! Really striking alone, and even more so when all together. I’m sure you’ve mentioned it before, but what is the finished size on each of the blocks?

  3. These are coming along so fabulously! I Love your idea of alternating lights and darks in a nod to the Lobe Star block. I think that would look great too! Found myself printing out a bunch of your bitty PP Papers last night. Thanks for sharing them.

  4. By accident I found your great blog. I now want to thank you for all the wonderful paper piecing patterns that you are sharing. Greetings from Barbara
