I did make it to 12 yesterday with the completion of this star. This ws the most complex one so far. Each quarter of the block is made up of 5 paper pieced sections, and each of those had multiple pieces. Getting the 5 paper pieced sections together to form a sqaure was a nightmare, but once that was done, putting the four squares together to make the block was a piece of cake...in comparison.
Hope everyone is doing well. I'm taking a short road trip next weekend by myself to see my parents and am going to take a couple of blocks and my featherweight with me to give me something to do when I wake at 5am.
