    Here is my red, white, and blue star. It is navy blue, so showing up as dark. It is going out tomorrow. :)

    OOOH!!! I really like that! Did you find it difficult? I thought I was going to be able to get to mine this weekend but that didn't happen. Hopefully I will be able to work on it tomorrow evening.

    Thanks, everyone. Yes, it's a paper pieced block that came from Sherry. It took a little figuring to make sure I placed the fabric correctly, since I haven't done a lot of paper piecing. I also used some tips and techniques learned from Judy Niemeyer in the workshop I took from her.

    I love your block. You did a great job on it and it does look like it is floating.

    Thank you for your help and thanks for posting so everyone can see it.
