WIP Wednesday- Lone Starburst

I sewed another paper pieced block this week- the Lone Starburst.
Much as I love the finished block, I must admit that it drove me a little bit crazy! 
The worst part was when I discovered a small area that was not covered by fabric after I had taken all the paper off- AAARGH!

That said, I think I managed to fix it pretty well and even I am not sure which point of the star it was!

Don't you love when the postman brings you happy mail...

This beautiful block actually arrived about a week ago, but my overly zealous husband thought that it was a birthday present so he squirrelled it away with my birthday mail. Poor Leonie was getting very worried about the missing block, so it was good to be able to put her mind at rest and have a good giggle about it with her when I finally opened it on Monday.

Her block is the first block that I have received as part of round two of the Modern Sampler Bee. (Eek! I'd better get my thinking cap on and decide what I'm going to make!) 

Isn't it great! I really do love how this quilt is coming together!

Here's the updated collage:

  4. Love the Lone Starburst. I think it's possibly my favourite one yet! (I think I say that each new block though!). I am not usually a grey person but it just sets the colours off so beautifully.
