Starry Bright Sky QAL: Foundation Paper Piecing Pattern 9b
This month is fun - we are doing a foundation paper piecing block!
I am starting with the second block, but have the paper part all ready for the first block too. I'm busy getting ready to go to a wedding, and then dog sitting and visiting friends on the East coast so get to do that first!
It was an easy pattern to prepare and sew. Completed it all in one sitting!
I like the way the paper lets you know when you have misaligned the pieces. I had to add two extra bits of blue to fill the block out...
I've only done a few other paper pieced blocks. The best was a beautiful deer design that I found online at Julianna's site at: http://jednoiglec.blogspot.com/2012/12/not-so-spring-deer-pattern.html
I sent it off to Katrin in Germany when I was mailing her some blocks she was compiling into a quilt for a friend with an ill child... I just peeked at her blog and see she has been working on adding blocks to surround the deer block!
