Default My Carol Doak Paper Pieced Oversize King

I asked my daughter to teach me paper piecing. I just dived right in! Picked a bunch of patterns from Carol's "300 Paper-Pieced Quilt Blocks." Picked fabric colors and was off to the races. The blocks turned out so cute that my daughter decided it should be an over-sized King, on the off chance she could end up buying it! So came up with needed border size and threw in HST strip to the border! I think it turned out bright and flashy! Now she has to throw it on her Avante and quilt it! heehee....or maybe she'll teach me that too!

THAT came out absolutely stunning. Love that you chose black sashing to make the colors pop.
