  4. Wow what a great collection. Thank you. I am making a King quilt for my brothers 60th birthday with a star theme and your collection will be great using different colour schemes.

  5. Thank you for these beautiful patterns, I hope to do them justice in my quilts. Your color selections were so special. Thanks Again!

  6. Wow love your use of printed fabric your work looks so fresh and modern in style. I am fond of paper piecing just have to decide on which pattern to piece

  7. I’ve just discovered your blog this morning by following bread crumbs that started in Pinterest. I love to paper piece, and this is an amazing array of possible blocks. I’ll be using some in the future. Thanks for your kindly sharing of patterns, and colour combinations.

  8. Your color selections are incredible. I am feeling inspired after seeing all these luscious patterns!n
    Thank you-love your site!

  9. Oh Wow! I can hardly wait to get started! How will I choose which ones to do first? Thank you for sharing these patterns I know must have taken a great deal of time! I hope your recovery is going well.

  10. I am not very adept at using paper pieced patterns, but I love your collection of patterns. I printed the Holiday Comapss pattern which I will make in teals and reds mainly, for the Teal Mini Swap to raise money for Ovarian Cancer this fall. Going to enjoy challenging myself on this one! thank you for the lovely pattern. Catherine

  11. I love your blocks, they’re awesome! Do I really need to download them, or will printing them be okay? (some suggest they be downloaded) Thanks.

    • Hi Marlene. To get accurate sizing you need to download the pattern. If you print from the browser window the patterns will print slightly smaller than needed. This is a good rule for all digital paper piecing patterns. And remember to double check that your pattern has printed properly by measuring the printed pattern sheet.

  13. i love your stars.. I am using one as a sun in a paper piecing toddler quilt that I am making.. each square is 8.5″ cut and 8″ sewn.. i know there is a method to resize the blocks.. can you tell me what that is if you know it? I plan to use 4 block space for the sun.. so it will be 16″ total.. thanks in advance..

  14. Thank you for sharing your unselfishness. I see all the hard work in the photos. Kudos for all your hard work. I’m not a fan of paper piecing plus I make all of my clothes. I have a important trip this summer and I need to clad a compass design. If it doesn’t turn out then nothing ventured nothing gained. If it does I’ll send you photos to share. Thank you again for sharing your creative spirit

  15. Thank you for all of these beautiful blocks! I’ve included Ellen’s Snowball in a project for my BFF’s birthday next month and am working on your 8″ blocks in a project for myself. I need to ask you about your Starry Night block. It says it’s 6″ yet it is included with all the other 8″ blocks done in greens. Is it really 6″? Or is that a typo? I’d like to make it but need it to be 8″ like the rest. Thanks!

    • Hi Rosemary. I am not sure what block you are referring to but if it is green it is 8 inches. If it is blue and yellow it could be a variety of sizes. You could always do a test print and measure the block just to check.

      • I did as you suggested and did a test print. Even though your STARRY NIGHT block is done in greens and is included with the other 8″ green blocks, it does indeed measure 6″. Didn’t want anyone else to be confused.
