So, I've somehow gotten on a kick to make really small blocks and I found this pattern in my quilting room. The Ohio Star blocks are 4.5" finished and I think the pattern calls for 96 in the quilt. I am doing it in reproduction fabrics. The size is challenging for me but I figure I should improve my accuracy in piecing by the time I've completed #95!

In Patterns and Techniques
I tried a new paper piecing technique at the recent guild retreat. This is Cynthia England's method (she has a website with videos showing her method) and it's very different from the way we are used to doing paper piecing. Her patterns are marked on freezer paper which you fix the RIGHT side of the fabric and then sew your seams together. That way the image doesn't have to be reversed and you can re-position the freezer paper and realign the pieces. A picture of the result is below. The entire image measures 12" X 13".
