    Paper piecing star wallhanging

    I'm practicing the paper piecing technique so I can start on a pattern I received as a gift. I thought I'd start with something simpler, and this seemed like fun. I found free patterns online, made three 12-inch star patches, sashed and bordered them, and then started to have fun with the quilting. I was recently at the quilt show in Lancaster PA, and I bought a book about feathers. I started doodling on paper, liked what I saw, and started to implement those designs in the quilt. I almost like the back better than the front! Hope you enjoy looking too.

    Definitely reversable. Nice job on both PP and quilting. And I wouldn't exactly call that star a beginner PP pattern. You appear to have jumped in with both feet and then proceeded to synchronize swim out swan lake! I think you are ready to tackle your gift pattern now.

    That is so pretty. Wish I could do feathers like that. I can draw nice ones on paper or I like them. Its the machine to cloth and yes practice practice. Looks like you've got it. Thanks for sharing. Please share the other when you get it done

    If I were you, I'd keep staring at my excellent quilting on the back, too! But I love the fabrics on the front ...
