Vintage Sunburst QAL - Month 2

It's Month 2 of the  Vintage Sunburst Quilt Along hosted by Fat Quarter Shop and I have 4 more blocks to share for this month.  I just love how happy and bright they are!!!  

Here are my 2 blocks made with the  8" Vintage Sunburst Paper Piecing pads and  Blossom Basics, in all of the warm tones :)    The first block in this one was a little wobbly in the center.  When I was piecing the final row together, my stitches started to come undone so I just tried to keep it together.   I thought about taking it out, but decided I am okay with it :)  I figure showing my ups and downs with paper piecing in this project is good and hopefully it will show how I get "better" with more practice ;)  

And here are my 12" Paper Piecing Pads and the  Blossom Basics, in cool tones :)  And I am super proud of these centers (of course, it is a little easier with the larger pieces).  I think they came together really well and one block the center point is almost perfect.   Happy Making!!!!   I shared some helpful hints that I have found while making this post in my Month 1 post that you can find here ;)   

  The quilt will finish at 64" x 88" so it will be a nice large throw size when complete.   The free pattern for this Quilt Along can be found right here ;)  And I am saving all of my paper piecing scraps and using them as my leaders and enders to make improv blocks.  Then there were 2, So fun :) 

So do you want to work on your paper piecing skills as well??  Pop over the the Vintage Sunburst Quilt Along page to get all of the details and join me in some paper piecing
