Traditional Piecing (Traditional for Me, Anyway)





I have rejoined my First Thursday Piecers' group.  We're doing some pretty traditional style blocks this year -- so I've challenged myself to make two of each and then make them each really different.    I also decided to dig into my Laurel Burch stash -- the colors go so well with my hand-dyes.


There are only three blocks in this photo.  Can you tell which are the same? -- Don't count the little Lemoyne stars.



I also got out my copy of Marsha McCloskey's Feathered Stars I -- it took me a couple of tries to get just the right sized star for the center.



I drew it in EQ7 first to get the colors on the feathers right.

I've been working on it for a couple of weeks -- a little at a time.


And it's finally finished!

I'm linking up with Judy at Design Wall Monday for the first time in a while!
