Ontario series #8


Paper piecing - either you hate it or you love it. I used to hate it now I don't mind it, ever since I became acquainted with the freezer paper method. It's easier, faster and less wasteful than the traditional method.

Outline Block #1

Ohio Star is a simple block. I got to wondering how I could dress it up.

Then I remembered my Shaganappi alphabet. It's an outline alphabet.

What if I made Ohio Star an outline block?

Even better, what if I outline all the pieces that make up the Ohio Star block?
