Starlight - Paper Pieced Templates

from Mishka's Playground
(7) Name: 'Quilting : Starlight - Paper Pieced Templates
Starlight - Paper Pieced Templates

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Paper piecing

Pattern Description:

Starlight is a series of paper-pieced templates in finished block sizes 6", 9", 12" and 14". There's no fear of chopping off your beautiful points when joining Starlight blocks, as this block floats in the background fabric. This is a dramatic star block with umpteen colour and fabric options.

Included in the Starlight pattern:

* Full-size templates to complete blocks that finish at 6", 9", 12" and 14" square. My templates are already reversed and identify the fabric patch to match the cutting chart.

* Cutting instructions for each block size. I'm a strong believer in pre-cutting my paper pieced patches. This allows me to enjoy the sewing and not worry about if a patch will fit or not.

* Detailed instructions, with photos, for completing the Starlight block. It is assumed that you have some experience already with paper piecing.

* Blank block diagram that you can print and colour with pencils/markers to audition your fabric and colour choices.

Please note that general instructions on how to paper piece are NOT included with this pattern. If you are new to paper piecing, I suggest my Paper Piecing Tutorial for Beginners booklet. I do not consider Starlight to be a beginner pattern, as it can be tricky when joining the segments together. However, if you've done my six lessons included in my beginner's tutorial, take your time and you should be just fine completing this block.
