Carol has just launched her new Craftsy class: Paper Pieced Stars. In this class she has packed in all of her tips and tricks for paper piecing star blocks. Carol uses nine blocks (with eight surrounding the center block) to make a really big quilt that frames her blocks beautifully.

Here is the quilt Carol made in 1999 using the setting that Janet and I have used in our 3 books featuring this setting. You can see how the big triangles in the spacers around Carol's center block to create a star-within-a-star setting that is a dramatic frame for her paper pieced star blocks.
