WIP - Lone Starburst

Linking up with Lee today at Freshly Pieced

This may be the year of paper piecing for me! I'm working on getting some projects ready for a retreat in March. The Lone Starburst block has been on my to-do list since the moment I laid eyes on her. Yes, this is a time-consuming block. It has 56 pieces! And takes me about an hour and a half per block. But so worth it! I'm using mainly Field Study scraps and a solid for the outer border.

Three blocks done...

The remaining are cut out, packed and ready to go!

(And don't think this is going to be a subdued quilt ~ pops of orange coming!)

 Rene's bee block also done...

And some major time spent this week quilting my FMF quilt. This is almost done and oh so pretty :)

Hope you're having a great week and spending some time with some yummy fabric    . . . Cindy


  1. Beautiful! Love the top star.

  2. I am really impressed with your lonestar blocks. I have been doing a paper pieced star every Monday for the last couple of months and I am loving it. I have not done this pattern , but have added it to the list of "must do". Thank you.

  3. these are SO pretty Cindy! I love them!

  4. Your blocks are very pretty. I love the lonestar block. I have a really hard time trying to figure out paper piecing so I just don't do it but it always looks so lovely.

  5. I love the Lone Star blocks - you're very brave to do more than one and I love how you are using a single colour for the outlines to pull the blocks together - it's going to look stunning!

  6. The stars are lovely! Well worth the time spent on them!

  7. The Lone Star blocks are so striking, Cindy!

  8. I love you colour choices for the lone star blocks - a pattern I will have to make some more of!!

  9. What beautiful blocks, thanks for linking up to my blog! I've admired yours very much for quite some time so it is such a treat to see you making the Lone Starburst.


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
