    Progress on Prairie Star

    This is a Judy Niemeyer Prairie Star. All the large points are done except for 3 pieces (ran out of one fabric!). Next is all the little points around the outside border. The pieces between the points are last because the directions say to just use whatever "darks" are left over for the little star points and flying geese.

    It's really pretty easy so far, just straight paper piecing, but I know it's going to get harder with all those inset seams.

    It turned out great so far, it looks like it would be hard to make. I have been wanting to try paper piecing, but haven't
    had a chance to make one yet. I made an original block that I turned in at Walmart and won first place, and the inset
    was very difficult at first. Until I found out you must start, and stop at the quarter inch seam allowance. Then it was easy. I made one star in the middle, and four stars in the corners, it was a red, white, and blue block. I won a $25.00
    gift certificate, and the block was added to other winners at other Walmarts. They said they were going to auction off the quilt, but I never heard any thing else about it. Hope you don't have any trouble with the rest of the quilt. I would love to see it finished. Keep up the good work.

    The colors aren't exactly right. The burgundy doesn't stand out so much in person. I had to lighten the picture (taken last night), adjust the tone, saturation, etc. because it was too dark.
