Jewel Stars Paper Piecing

I really like Bonnie and Camille's new line, April Showers .  I joined all the mini charms (save 3 or 4) together using 1" Paper Piecing Hexagons. This project will be a pillow.

And now I have jumped to making Jewel Stars.
This is the beginning of another pillow. I am trying out a glue pen this time. I haven't tried to take out thepapers yet so I can give a full review yet but so far I love the pen for making the individual pieces.

My friend, Trina, first got me interested in paper piecing. She and I met at our local Modern Quilt Guild .
I encourage anyone to join us for a meeting. We meet the second Saturday at 6 at the Quilt Barn.

Trina is now hand quilting this lovely quilt.

This quilt is used the same diamonds as the papers used in the Jewel Stars set.

A few of the blocks she wrote when and where she made the block. This was a traveling project.
Thanks for letting us share your paper piecing adventure
