Stars in my eyes

And in my hands, and all over every horizontal surface in the living room. 


What I am not showing is all the prep work for the quilt:  fabric cutting, using the paper pieces, sewing the components together, pulling out the paper pieces to reuse.  There's a lot that goes on in English paper piecing.  It's much more work than sewing on the machine, but I really love doing it.  It has this gentle rhythm that is soothing and peaceful.  (and piece full, too)

Love the way the fabrics are working in this design, great colors! Thanks for leaving a msg on my blog, to answer your question, I do plan to make the full (24 hex) block, the same design/size as the original. At least, that is the plan.

Beautiful! I love english paper piecing too - it is so relaxing to stitch by hand.

Very pretty colors.

Very soothing color pallete, too! Hand work does allow for more relaxing stitching time.
