My blogging friends and I are making blocks for a friendship quilt I will put together at the end of the month. I made the SD star from Carol Doaks book. I was happy with how it turned out until the very last step of joining the blocks. When I couldn't get the whites to match up I finally gave up and called it my best effort. This was a little challenging as there were over 100 pieces in the final block. I hadn't done paper piecing in a while, but it all came back to me quickly.
