LONE STARBURST – FREE PATTERN

Last week, Craftsy featured a free paper-pieced pattern called Lone Starburst.

There are no directions given but it’s an easy 12-½ -inch unfinished block for anyone with basic paper piecing skills.  If I make another one, I won’t use the lighter prints in the star. I added a narrow border to make a cushion cover.  I did not use batting or quilt this piece…

…and used the leftover scraps to make the back.

Paper piecing is time-consuming but interesting and produces designs that would be difficult for me to make otherwise.  Using a free pattern and some scraps, I have a nice cushion for the recliner.
