English Paper Pieced Rose Star Block 14

Taadaa! This block was finished promptly thanks to all of that hand sewing I got done during the Olympic opening ceremonies during the Austin Modern Quilt Guild weekend sewing retreat.

Yay! I have another block basted and ready to be sewn together as well. Once I get that one done, I promise to lay them all out and take a picture so you can see where I stand. Maybe I'll even make a decision about background fabric at that point. Don't get too excited. The background fabric could easily end up being Kona White. You know how I am ;-)

Remember, if you need some hand sewing to keep you from chewing your fingernails off during Olympic competitions, check out Clare's tutorial on selfsewn.

Happy crafting!

  1. i quite like this one! how many do you have so far? do you think you'll epp in the background or will you applique the blocks onto squares? just curious. i've been contemplating both options for some that I'm working on.
