WIP Birch trees

I'm working on a few class samples for later this year and here's what I've come up with so far...

I'm telling myself I'm stopping because I need some good light to take pictures

but really I don't have a good idea of where this is going, so I'll enjoy it as it is and move on to the next sample!

Also, I've only heard back from one winner of the SMS giveaway, so I'll be redrawing this Friday if I haven't heard from winner #2 by then!!

WIP Confetti Rainbow Stars

Hello again! I'm all bloggin 2 days-in-a-row like a regular!

If you're looking for the SMS Giveaway, step right this way!

I've recently been exposed to paper piecing - thanks to the lovely and patient Karen. I don't want to say I've gotten "addicted," because that would imply that I'm good at it. Let's just say I've become "attracted" to printing out cool PP patterns that I see and cutting at them and stacking them on my window sill. (FYI there are a TON of freebies on Craftsy.)

Anyway, I came across this free pattern called Confetti Star, and decided to use some of my rather large pile of charm squares.

I intended to just see where inspiration takes me - which has meant a lot of time just staring at it.
Clearly, there was a problem. I wanted to keep the color wheel arrangement, but the orange & green didn't go well together. Luckily for me, I got a little treat in the mail yesterday!
After a good look through this gem, I spotted a quilt called "Squareburst" (which can also be seen on the Amazon sneak peek page.) Sidebar - how the HECK do you copy a pattern that doesn't actually fit on your printer??? I was struggling with that nonsense for way too long lol . 

Anyway, here's what I came up with. 
Squareburst Color Wheel
 and it fit right in!
