My fifth star in the “Stars Galore” quilt!
I’m extremely happy with how this star turned out. It is a paper piecing pattern. I love it so much I’m planning on using it as the centerpiece block.
I’ve made a few paper pieced blocks before, but can’t say I got hooked. After making this block, I now feel confident in the process.
Part of my avoidance to PP is it seems to waste a lot of fabric? I get uncomfortable cutting pieces so much larger than the finished size. I think I notice it because the scraps are more angular or irregular? And also because I try to be economical with my fabric. What are your thoughts on paper piecing?
The block and the quilt are Kona solids and BasicGrey’s Grunge “Seeing Stars” from Moda. The background a variety of neutrals, warm and grayish off-whites.
Only four more to go!

Hoping all is well with you in your quilting corner of the world! ~Abbie 💫
