A New Project...

Like I need another project to work on but, I HAVE to support my friends as they teach in our group so....
LOL
I guess that is going to be my justification for starting this quilt. I had purchased the fabrics a year ago from Connecting Threads for a class at the Utah Quilt Fest. Some lovely foundation pieced snowflake/stars but they turned out to be very very time consuming. So I set that stuff aside for maybe later?
Then when CN presented this idea to our group I thought YES! something to use those fabrics with. My original intent was to make a wall quilt for my bedroom and the new project will work nicely.
The pattern is from Carol Doak and is free...if you want to try it. It probably takes about 3 hours to make the whole block and it finishes at 12".

Look at all those points. Paper pieced? Free? I may have to try that.
