|Center of Delightful Stars quilt|
I made a few changes in layout by reversing some blocks. This was mostly to enhance the balance of the colors. I also redid one block. My first version just didn't fit. It's did not go to waste and my granddaughter loved it and we are making it into a pillow.

I also learned to paper piece. I think it is about the messiest thing I've done in a while. I do like the outcome, so I am sure I'll do it again in the future. Here are some of my paper pieced blocks.

Although I am excited about the progress I've made, I am far from completing this quilt. There are fiveborders. There is a border of background fabric, then a border of four patch square. Another plain border and a pieced border. I just taking it a border at a time. I worry I might run out of the background. If I do I'm sure I can improvise.
The next lesson is August 26th. Until then I've tucked this project away and have decided to piece a lap quilt with some sunflower batik fabric I've been holding on to. Thanks for checking in.
