Block On [part 1]

I spent all day yesterday quilting. Lots of quilting. But it's too big to photograph at home without my hubby. So you'll have to wait till later in the week to see that!

But once I was finished I am setting aside the rest of this wonderful long weekend to make blocks, blocks and more blocks.

This week in between things I should be doing I've been playing with foundation pieced stars in various sizes. All are from Carol Doak's 50 Paper Pieced Stars

Kentucky (8"); Rhode Island (6"); and Wisconsin (4"). These were going to be part of an item for a swap, as we needed an Angel in one I was taking part in. Then at the last minute I wasn't needed any more. I'm not sad, because I really love these blocks and I'm sure I'll find a home for them!

This is my favourite (yep - Architextures)!

I topped these off with the April block in the Lucky Stars BOM - I'm a little behind, but not as much as I was!

Oh yes - more Architextures! I'm addicted....

I have more plans for tomorrow! But for today I'm taking the opportunity to link up with Kristy at Quiet Play who is hosting her first ever Paper Piecing Linky Party this weekend - what a fantastic idea - I'm off to check out some of the other blogs!

I'm a fan of architextures too...who isn't? haha Love your stars! I love the idea of mixing the sizes of the stars in one quilt. Got me thinking...
