Vintage Sunburst QAL - Month 6

It's Month 6 of the  Vintage Sunburst Quilt Along hosted by Fat Quarter Shop and I have to admit, I missed Month 4 and 5.  Things just got crazy busy and I didn't get my blocks done.   And I realized, the only way I was going to have a chance at catching up is to do some major chain stitching!!!   So here is this month's share for the Vintage Sunburst Quilt  

I decided to just make all of my remaining blocks in the   8" Vintage Sunburst Paper Piecing pads and  Blossom Basics, in all of the warm tones :)   Yes, i still need to add the borders to the blocks, but that will be last month.  

It was so much faster to make these just super chain stitching.  I just kept making giant stacks of sunburst units.   It meant each step took a longer of course, but it was nice to do each step just once.   I think I will have to make the 12" Paper Piecing Pads and the  Blossom Basics, in cool tones the same way.   And wouldn't you know it, I managed to get one center near perfect!!!  Yippee ;)  

 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 because I only did the warm colors, my leaders and enders are going to have to wait for some cool scraps.   But they are sure coming along from the previous blocks!! 

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 fun :)
