Zodiac Stars - Scorpio

I've pretty much decided that, except for my block of the month's that I'm trying to keep up on, April is going to be a paper-piecing month for me.  I am bound and determined to get my niece's quilt finished.  For those that don't remember, I am making her a quilt called Zodiac Stars.  Here is the block I finished yesterday, Scorpio...

 

There are 12 large blocks, one for each sign in the zodiac, and then there are a lot of smaller stars, called starlets.  I'm making 2-3 of the starlets out of each color combination as I make the larger blocks.  I already have them started for this red combo and should finish them rather quickly this evening.

Here are the first four of the larger blocks together...

 

I also have a few Doctor Who block patterns that will be added into this quilt top.  I really cannot wait to get to those.

I think my paper-piecing skills are definitely improving.  I finished up the snowflake block for our Not So Last Minute Christmas Quilt Along yesterday before doing this block.  After the snowflake block, this one was sooooo easy!!  :)

Speaking of our quilt along, the link up will open tomorrow!  So there is still time to join in the fun.  Here's a link to this month's block, the snowflake, and here's a link to the page telling all about the quilt along.  Love to have you join us!!

Your stars look great! Paper piecing is a skill I'm not confident in yet but one I hope to get better at. Thanks for linking up to MCM!
