I am slowly catching up on the 2017 Summer Sampler by three quilters: Katie (swimbikequilt.com), Lee (freshlypieced.com) and Faith (freshlemons.com). Their blogs are informative, wonderful and modern. I receive their blog posts through email and always read them. I enjoy their tips and looking at their quilts.
Week #6 block is called the "Marine Star." I love all of the blocks but this I enjoyed sewing it and of course, the paper piecing. I know that there are quilters who do not care for paper piecing but I can understand you non-acceptance of this technique: working on the back of the paper, purchasing the special paper piecing paper and sewing through all of the thickness of the fabric but I love it so much. To me it is easy and quick especially considering the sharp points are really SHARP! This block is my favorite, so far.
Well, I have two more blocks to complete: blocks 7 & 8. I will continue to work.
