I treated myself and bought some fat quarter bundles from Pink Castle Fabrics.
After staring and petting these stacks for too long I finally cut into them and made this.
I love it so much! Especially the newsprint backing. I used the circle of geese tutorial at Chasing Cottons. After getting through the paper piecing on that I was hooked. I found these gorgeous compass blocks and had to make one of my own.
I was able to do it in a day in short sessions. The pattern is from equiltpatterns.com and it's only .99. I have already downloaded another star compass block that I look forward to working on. Not sure what I will do with the blocks but I enjoy the paper piecing. I have to get back to Swoon though. I think I'm stalling because I'm scared at the though of quilting it.
