As promised! I've been working on some more patterns. I love the "bean pot" block from the "Civil War Legacies Quilt Patterns for Reproduction Fabrics" book by Carol Hopkins. But i wanted to add a little twist to an already small block. So I changed out the center solid square with a paper pieced star that I came up with. I'll add the free pattern for the star here.
I only made 3 mistakes, not carefully placing my fabric on the correct side of the line and then using the wrong color 2 times. Otherwise, I'm pretty happy with how everything matched up. It's funny how such a little block (finished size was about 2" square) can take a while to put together. Though, I do enjoy the almost certainty that my points will meet perfection with paper piecing.
Enjoy! If you make one, please feel free to share, of if you have recommendations on tweaking, let me know too. I'm new to this pattern making stuff.
