Description

I first saw this block when +Kristananne made it following a tutorial from Freshlemonsquilts.com and I loved it. But I was afraid to try it since it was paper pieced and I had a definite mental block against that technique. Well lo and behold the tutorial is excellent and even I could finish it and be happy with the results.
   It will meet it's first collaborator in June and I can hardly wait to see the journey as each person will add a border to it before returning home some 10 months later. In turn every month I will get to add a border on to the other quilts as they advance from house to house. So much fun to come up with new ideas as to what border I think will be a good addition to my "guest" quilt.

Sweet! Congratulations on the paper piecing success, and I love your color and fabric choices.

LOVE it and it is perfect for this quilt! And I love that you learnd paper piecing...Faith's instructions were some of the ones I read to get the hang of paper piecing...she always makes things easier IMHO.

Carolmarie I love the Carpenter Star and with your soft colors it will be beautiful. Get crackin girl! The blocks go out in June and are supposed to arrive no later than June 15th. I still need to get a little journal...

Terryt1955

True Thanks! I now see why you have so much fun with paper piecing! And yes Faith is my inspiration. Such great tutorials and great taste in colors and fabric. I want to put her in my pocket and take her home! Ohhh, that sounded creepy didn't it!

Mymble

Really wonderful- all those fabrics will give us a zillion directions to head off into-and the blue border is really a nice setting for it... just great!

Carolmarie Not a clue yet. I was thinking about making one of the covers based on Angela's links but I think I'm short on time. I need to catch up on my Hive blocks.Looks like I'm off to target to see if they still have the cute ones I saw at Christmas time.

Mymble Thanks! That was the plan to have lots of options but to tie in "sometimes" with the aqua border.This is going to be so much fun!

Kruppcake

It's awesome! Just the inspiration I needed to get started on mine!

Kathie

Terryt1955 Just verified that this comes my way in June smile You bet, I'm looking at my stash very closely and thinking, dreaming, planning,..... so many great possibilities.

Readerowl And I have complete faith in you. Everything you do I love so I know my first border will be wonderful. It also means every time I add a border to someone else's you will follow so if mine sucks yours will make up for it!!
