Hello and welcome to Paper Piecing Tuesday…. yesterday got away from me so this week we are paper piecing a day late.

  1. Not long to go till we can watch you working out your favourite Emerald Star layout! Autumn’s here, it’s cool at night, easy to sleep, and I can finally work in the garden without danger of heatstroke. Lovely! Queensland sends its greetings.

      • I keep coming back to look at this star… I’ve added it to a file of potential blocks for my FootSquareFreestyle block swap party starting in June – if I add a border round the outside it’ll be the foot square it needs to be, and it’s simple enough that I won’t be able to stuff it up!

      • That would be brilliant! It needs to come out at 12.5″ for a 12″ finished size once all the blocks are sewn together. There’s no hurry, though, the block swap doesn’t kick off till 1st June and it runs for a year.

  2. Just wanted to say thank you so much for all the lovely star patterns you have supplied. I love your site and am usually just a non posting observer! I really love your stars and have already made two of them. Thanks so much!
