Twinkle Toes Start

 So you might recall, I was trying to decide whether to make a quilt or a table runner from December Sew Sampler fabrics . . . well, I decided on a quilt and got to cutting!!! I had 42 squares total between the two Lori Holt Petite Bundles, and managed to cut some 5 extra 2 1/2" squares from each 10" square as well.   Double bonus :)  I will have to add a border on the quilt to make it lap size, but that's fun and quick.   

And when I finished cutting the Lori Holt squares,  I remembered I had planned to used my Red Barn Christmas scraps from the quilt I shared Friday to make a Christmas Table Runner.   So, yup, more cutting!!!   And again, more bonus 2 1/2" scrap squares.   

And I had so much fun cutting, I just couldn't stop.   So I grabbed my Sparkle Star Foundation Paper and whipped up the first 4 blocks.   These will be for the 4 corners.  I didn't have time to sew more, but  I was just so happy to see how fun and cute these first 4 blocks were.

I am hoping it won't be long before I am sharing some Sparkle Star and Twinkle Toes finishes :)   And yippee for more paper piecing practice!!

How about you . . . do you feel confident paper piecing or like me, are you looking for a little practice??  I still plan on working on this Paper Piecing quilt (although not as Leader/Enders)  as well, which are also not to difficult and will be some great practice ;)

Let the paper piecing fun commence!!!  

Pin It!


  1. I haven't found paper piecing very enjoyable, but the above Sparkle Star FPP has really caught my interest. I just might have to jump in and see about trying this one :)! Enjoy sewing all your new projects!

  2. Will love watching your progress on this one..


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
