This block was created in conjunction with the 2016 Paintbrush Studios New Block Blog Hop. The Sand Dollar Star quilt block is an excellent skill builder block that is created using foundation paper piecing (FPP), curved piecing, and is finished with a fabric yo-yo. Foundation paper piecing gives you lovely, precise points, resulting in a block with a clean, professional appearance. Once this step is completed, you will set the inner circle you created into the outer section of the block using a traditional curved piecing process. To complete the block, you will create a fabric yo-yo that is hand appliqud onto the center of the block. Prior experience with these techniques may be helpful, but between the included directions and associated blog post, you will be able to learn new processes while creating this block.
