    The Spanish class at school is planning a Cinco de Mayo celebration. They asked me to make a wall hanging that they can raffle off. I asked the kids to draw a 12 inch block of what they would like the design to be. When I got it, I looked at Marcia Hohn's Quilterscache site and found a paper pieced block called On a Clear Night. The first pic is is the single block. The second is all 9 blocks. This was the first piece I did that was entirely paper pieced. I had practiced with a NYBeauty, that was very difficult for me. Enjoy!
