Paper Pieced Star Block, aka Block Rockin' Week - Morrison
Just a little paper pieced star courtesy of Julie Wallander Hirt over at 627 Handworks. She posted some really great, free paper pieced patterns on her blog. There is also a Flickr pool & Instagram group too, so you can see the variety of results that can be achieved. I'd take a class at City Quilter with the fabulous Judy on working with striped fabric, so incorporated a few stripes.
My big plan for this little block is a sort of modern sampler quilt for one of my cousins little kiddies (longer term goal is to make quilts for all kiddies of cousins who don't have one yet). I'll be making a few more stars from Julie's blog as well as a few graphic, basic blocks as well. My color palette plan is red, brown, all shades of greens, few blues, with a neutral linen fabric included in all blocks.
