I love this block.  It is called the Lone Starburst and is paper pieced.  You can find the free pattern on the Six White Horses blog.  It took a while to make, but it was worth the time involved.  Just go slow, position your pieces carefully, and you’ll be as pleased as I am.  I thought it would look nice with the last paper pieced block I made and blogged about here.   Buffie was right.  She has made a paper piecer out of me.  I love bright colors and am not very good at traditional piecing.  Paper piecing makes me look like I’m really good at it.  The lines are straight and so far things have matched and the blocks are square!  Whoopie!

1.    The Shop Swap has been cancelled.

I love it, Caroll! Wow! My first thought when I saw it was, "Wow! That's some piecing, Caroll!" I'm so glad you love it and had great success.

I think my schedule will allow for class. Need to check with Lloyd. I have FNSI the night before. I wonder if I can handle that much sewing! LOL

It's fabulous Caroll! Look at how well all those points match! That's what paper piecing will do for ya. And you are getting good at it!
