Starry Starry Night….a secret project

So, I have been working on a “secret” project, meaning that I could not blog about it until it was ready.  I have tested a pattern for Denise at For the love of geese.  I volunteered to test this pattern for her, mostly because I really don’t paper piece but wanted to do it/get better/be less chicken.  That way when I see some of the beautiful paper pieced patterns, I won’t just dismiss them because they are paper pieced.

I previously attempted to paper piece a quilt and gave up.  So, I am always up for a challenge and really wanted to be able to paper piece confidently.  By the time I was done with this quilt, I was pretty confident with it.  It looks so hard, but it really wasn’t.

I actually like this one so much, I am going to finish it and put it up for my future grandchildren.  Funny thing was that I did not find the paper piecing difficult at all.  What I found harder was putting the blocks together.  I wanted to make sure all the points were perfect.  They are not, but not too bad.

Now the dilemma, How to quilt it?  I will have to think about that one for a bit.  If you are interested in this pattern, please visit Denise at “For the Love of Quilting“.

Happy Sewing

Happy Quilting

  1. Hi Lori,
    Great job on the paper piecing! This looks great. I have to confess I tried paper piecing eons ago for a Hunter Star pattern. I never did finish it. I look forward to seeing how you quilt this! ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Looks great! I do have wanted to try paper piecing so I took an all day class for a Judy Niemeyer pattern. Took me half the day to finish the first block before I resolved my spatial issues. Still working on it but I am enjoying it.

  3. Great job piecing the quilt. It is so good to take up a challenge and get familiar with a technique you’ve avoided in the past. Carol Doak has a great class on Craftsy if you want to explore the perfectionist side of fpp 🙂
