Tiny Star Pieces

For the past few months, I’ve been making a variety of 8″ (finished) blocks, which may end up in some sort of sampler quilt. Or may not. I just don’t know yet. For right now, I’m just having fun making them.

I’ve drafted foundation patterns for most of them, but a few of them have a lot of Y-seams. I’ve successfully machine-pieced such blocks, but this time around, I thought it would be fun to try to make them using English paper piecing.

I’ve found that I enjoy the technique, and I’ve been satisfied with the results.

Up to now, the pieces I’ve been assembling have been of a reasonable size. This morning, however, I spent an hour or two preparing the pieces for the latest block. My husband observed, quite rightly, that these are Really Small Pieces.

    They are, indeed, very small pieces…were there drugs involved in the assembly:)

    No drugs, or at least nothing illegal.
