Look how cute it is! Let's pet it. Oooooh, pet, pet, pet. So purdy.
Ok, this block was a great success. Now, it's back to the chaos of picking fabrics and designing and cutting for new blocks. I've now depleted all of my design work from May. I determined it takes an hour to pick and cut fabrics for the 31 pieces in each of these blocks. I'll try to time myself this go around to see if I'm faster.
These Rose Star blocks are so perfect for when you can grab a few minutes of sewing here and there outside of your sewing space. You can do it, too! Just check out Clare's tutorial for English paper piecing on her blog, selfsewn.
I'm going to have to get a leather or silicon thimble, though. Marathon stitching sessions have resulted in the blunt end of my needle poking through the skin on my middle finger. First aid was necessary. Metal thimbles have proven too ridged for me to use with any amount of control.
