one lonely starburst

yesterday i worked on my do. good stitches inspire blocks for march.  we are making lone starburst blocks using this template from anna at six white horses.  the color scheme is awesome - navy, aqua, kelly green, citron-ish yellow, and grays against white.  love.

i haven't done much paper piecing, and while i love the end result, i always feel like i am wasting so much fabric!!  does anyone else struggle with that?  my precious fabric.  not like i don't have any to spare! 



anyways, we have 2 of these blocks to make, and i have the 1st pieced and ready to stitch together.  they come together fast, really, and the pretty points make it all worth while.  but i cringed every time i cut the excess fabric off.  so i can't say i thoroughly enjoy making them :)  i'm such a miser!!

hey, it's a start :)

 it looks like rain today, so after preschool i should be able to knock the rest of the 2nd block out.  wish me luck!

I love paper piecing:) I did a circle of geese a few days ago. There are small pieces left over,but not too many big ones. I didn't start off with big ones either though.

Drooling over ur star;)The perfect points are such a winner in my eyes!

I'd be cringing too. Just call me Scrooge McFabric. It looks awesome though!

I agree! I don't like the waste involved with paper piecing, but your block is stunning!
