But first - an intermission

So I was making good progress on my Puddle Jumping quilt when I got an invitation to test a paper-piecing pattern by Alyce Blythe of Blossom Heart Quilts.  Even though I haven't done much paper-piecing, I decided to take a break from my 2015 Finish-Along list and jumped right in!

The mini quilt pattern is called Happy Star and you can find it in her pattern shop here.  

Here are a few pics of my process.

Fabrics - mainly Notting Hill by Joel Dewberry

1st four sections ~ the two pieces on the left should have been on the right

All pieced and sewn together!

Top's finished ~ yay!

 Here's a peek at the back and binding ~ 
it's Folklore Paisley Pumpkin Orange by Lily Ashbury

Happy to say that it's now hanging in my sewing space!

Just wanted to say Thanks to Alyce for letting me test this lovely pattern ~ check out her post to see all the different Happy Stars made by the other testers!

OK ~ now back to Puddle Jumping!  

Linking up with Lorna and Kelly!

  5. Georgi,
    You are an excellent sample maker. You may not be experienced at paper piecing but your finished project is perfection!


Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments. :)
