Mendocino…..finally

I am finally cutting into my Mendocino fabric!  I have all the prints from the line, I have been hoarding them for a few years.  I saw Rita and Faith make the most gorgeous modern looking paper pieced star and I knew what I wanted to do with my Mendocino :)  I found the book 50 Fabulous Paper Pieced Stars at my local library, but I do want to get a copy for myself soon.  This first block is called Virginia Star.

I had a lot of fun with this one.  Love those swimming sisters :)

The second one is called Wyoming Star.

This one is my favorite so far :)  I love the colors and love fussy cuts of the mermaids and animals.

I plan on just making lots of these until I have a nice sized top.  Doing these blocks doesn’t take much out of the beloved stash either since they are fussy cut.  You really only need a few pieces per block to showcase them.  It’s going to be a great scrap stash buster too.  Yay!

    I think I’ll come here again and see what stars you make. I’m curious.
