|Hallway's too narrow to get a straight on shot of course|
This Star Blossom block is a project from the Handstitched Class that Rachel @ Stitched in Color teaches. (Shes opening registration for her classes again January 1st, I highly recommend you try her Handstitched class if you have any interest, I'll be taking her Curves one if I can)
This is paper pieced, sewn onto fabric and mounted on a 16"x20" canvas ( to do with as your imagination dictates). I certainly did a better job on it than I did my first two attempts at paper piecing!
This is the second item I've sewn onto fabric & mounted on a canvas, and this one doesn't lay perfectly flush against the background fabric, but I am still pretty happy with it and I'll like it more when I get around to painting my walls beige ;) Not sure about my fabric choices, I still have a lot to learn about that subject.
The piece in the middle was supposed to be more off center to show the other elements on it a bit more, but instead it just looks like I was trying to center the flower and sucked at it :)

My stash was getting a bit unwieldy as I was keeping it in a stack of plastic bins, which of course always had at least one cat sleeping on the top lid so I couldn't get to it. These aren't the best storage solution (had to turn them on their sides for the fabric to fit in this way) but they'll work for the time being and were not that expensive all things considered ($45 each).
