    I saw this pattern online last week and I knew I just had to make it. It arrived in the mail today and instead of getting more sleep since I have to work overnight tonight, I decided to start sewing a bit. Here's my progress so far.

    I will add more pics as I complete more of the sections. I am already loving the precision of paper piecing, but I feel kind of guilty about how much fabric I'm wasting.

    Ohhhh I can tell that's going to be a beauty.

    Are the pieces 'large' enough where you can sew them back together in crumb block fashion for the backing? That way all will not be totally lost.

    I hope you don't mind but I had to see what the entire skirt looked like and found this. Is it the one?

    yes that's the one. I'm making mine a more scrappy version to reduce my stash some. What is crumb block fashion?

    well I got a little more done today. I finished another of the center star sections, like the one above. I realized that by using a stripe fabric in the center, the stripes aren't going to match up when it's all sewn together. Not sure how much this is going to bother me, but I'm trying not to focus on it.

    I also completed one of the flying geese borders. I think it's really pretty with the different fabrics instead of one main fabric, but man was it tedious! And slow going. My shoulders and back are not thanking me right now.
