Hasenbach Challenge: June Blocks

Today I would like to show you two more blocks that I have completed for the Hasenbach Challenge.   These two stars are the blocks that have been released by Claudia for the month of June.



The first is the 'Wishing Star'.  It uses the same foundation paper piecing technique that all these blocks use and, although I am getting more familiar with the technique, I still find it difficult to get all the pieces to line up well.



The second is the 'Mexican Star'.  Again, foundation paper pieced and, I found this star a little easier to put together than the one above.  I am quite pleased with how they both look and all the stars together are starting to look very pleasing.



Have a lovely weekend!

  5. I looked at the first block and tried to figure out how it was put together before I read the 'foundation pieced' part. It looks really intricate!

    1. Thank you Mary Anne! I do like the finished blocks but they have been the cause of a few expletives in the sewing room! LOL! Christine x

    2. Expletives? No, no - you're just blessing them.

  6. I might follow your lead and just use Claudia's stars. The buildings are pretty too but somehow I don't feel a connection to them. Your star-collection is beautiful. I need to visit again to see what you will create. Thanks for sharing. Danke!

    1. Thank you Baa! I like how the stars all look now but I find paper piecing a difficult technique... you sort of work back to front and I am not very good at that! Christine x
