This is the first block in the 50 Fabulous Paper-Pieced Stars... next is Alaska. I had to do the Alabama star as I have a son and daughter there- blubbered just a bit. But ya know, I think I'd rather work on my Dear Jane blocks. Paper piecing is a bit tedious for me and I enjoy it on a smaller scale. These stars are 12"- you could small'in 'em down, but nah. I think they'll go to the back burner for a while and I'll pull out the DJ. I made this star with my hand dyed fabric. Always fun, but I am just not lovin' it- maybe it is the black. I might switch to navy. Maybe. I am in more of a cleaning mood and I reckon I better strike while the iron is hot as that rarely happens. House work over sewing? Well ya know, it must be bad! See ya on the flip side!
