April's Lone Starburst

I've now finished
putting together
April Rosenthal's
Lone Starburst block

Quite a relief to have this
 12-inch block done.
I will happily drop it off in the mail today,
where it will head to April's house in Utah.
 I really liked the fabrics
sent us
reds, yellows, grays and teals.
 My block will be added with
11 other
Bee's Knees Quilting Bee blocks
heading April's way.
Being part of a Bee is a great way to get a quilt done.
 The Lone Starburst really is a
wonderful block.
I finished putting together my
practice block, too.
 A nice way to use up scraps.
This one block looks a
little lonely by itself.
At one point
I plan on making more
to keep it company :)
I admit, the paper piecing
was a little challenging at times,
but I was
happy to practice
and gain a little more confidence
in this technique.

this is a nice way to get a quilt done, do one block for some one else but first practice with a block for yourself. I love the look of this block

Fantastic. Too hard for me. It is crisp and perfect looking.
