Just before the holidays, Craftsy had a sale on their online classes so I decided to sign up for their “Quick-Strip Paper Piecing” with Peggy Martin. I’m not a big fan of the stars but it’s something I wanted to learn and thought I could probably use this skill in other ways and in different projects. I knew going into this that I definitely didn’t want to use any batiks,no red and black together, or browns for that matter. Get my drift? I wanted a modern star with modern fabrics.
Using a Little Apples jelly roll by Aneela Hoey and Kona Coal, I think I achieved my goal. This block was actually very easy but you need to watch the videos and pay attention. I somehow managed to loose one of the paper pieces in my massive fabric mess.
The next block I’m going to attempt is “Pinwheel Polka”, a 4-point star which I actually quite like. Not sure which fabric I’ll use yet.
And speaking of fabric (what a segway huh?), I ordered a shed load of Liz Scott’s Domestic Bliss today, I hope it doesn’t take too long to arrive, can’t wait!!
