Today I decided to get this block made so I can relax the rest of the week without it nagging to get done. Each week I look forward to a new block to come out on Saturday morning on Barbara Brackman’s blog: Grandmother’s Choice. She has done such a wonderful job of pulling together these blocks for us. But even more important I think is the wonderful history she is sharing with us all. If you haven’t been to her blog yet please go check it out.
Here’s my rendition of #6 Aunt Eliza’s Star. Even though this would have been a simple block to piece I chose to paper-piece it. I’ve fallen in love with paper-piecing so if I can do it simply then I’m all for it right now. With the BOM from Carol Doak and now my Christmas Bows & Boughs all being paper-pieced I’m sure getting a lot of practice.
