Starry Bright Sky QAL: Curved Paper Piecing 11b

The last block design was revealed at the first of the month.  It took me a while to print the pattern pieces out.  I had unknowingly clicked something at the lower left so everything was printing out in reverse.  If it happens again I know what to uncheck!

I did the second option as it looked more like a star to me, and that is what the theme to me was for the year...

It is paper piecing.  Took a couple of tries to remember how to do, but it is done now.  I had forgotten the step of folding the lines and then trimming the fabric so it is 1/4 inch from the line, but once I remembered that it went together rather quickly (for me).  One afternoon.  Maybe three hours?

I just have to find the other blocks and put this project together now!

In person the blue in the center spoke and the strip around it are different shades of blue.  It's a little distracting the way it shows in the photo.

I'm linking to the others so you can see how they interpreted the block:

I've been very busy and notice I have not blogged in a while, but I wanted to be sure to get this block posted so I could be in the drawing!  : )

    1. Thank you so much!

      BTW I clicked to see how you made the block. Your additions and choice of fabrics really make it shine!

  2. How odd that you got everthing printing flipped! well, at least this is not a particularly directional pattern anyway, so it turned out fantastic!! Thanks for sharing and for working on the QAL blocks over the months!!
