Ohio Star




This is my first try at paper-piecing. I really liked it. I have to admit it was a little time consuming at first but then I got the hang of it and I was getting my blocks done in no time. The pattern I did was called the Ohio Star. My friend and teacher Marlene Seymour gave me that pattern.

It is from this book. I would like to get the book someday and try all the other patterns. I had some friends do the same pattern and all our blocks turned out so different because of the different colors we choose. I got my cream colored fabric from Marlene and my polka dot fabric from the Hobby Lobby remnant bin. I got the blue fabric from Joanns. Stay tuned for my next quilt project.

so cute! I really love those colors together. The red one is the same as my kitchen curtains.

I do love this pattern. I've seen so many wonderful variations.
