Paper Pieced Stars

When I first learned paper piecing I made a bundle of star blocks on a black background.

I have had these block in a drawer for a few years and came accross them a couple of months ago.

I found with the blocks a bag of scraps of the fabrics I used to make them so made some bright sashing to surround them and used the rest to make the binding.

I tried to take some nice photos of the quilt but the wind got up.

And up, until!

I accepted defeat!

It was good to use the blocks, I think I could have done more with the back of the quilt, but a lot of the blocks had pretty thick seams in places and it would have added a lot of bulk to the quilt if I had added pieced blocks to the back so just left it plain.

    1. It just seems that no matter what the weather before I take a quilt out to be photographed as soon as I get the quilt somewhere nice an looking OK up come a breeze and its away! Paper piecing is what I love to work on in the winter on the dining room table with a movie in the back ground. Thanks for your comments it means a lot.
