Happy Monday—hope you all are ready for Summer Sampler block number 13! This one is called Compass Star and was designed by Faith Jones of Fresh Lemons Quilts.

Yes, it’s another paper-pieced block. : ) But what I really appreciate about this one is that after you finish the paper-piecing part of the block, there really aren’t any seams to line up, so it comes together beautifully with minimal effort.

My tip for this week is, when you sew together the two flying geese units, make sure you sew with the larger (darker) goose facing towards you—just like I’m showing above.

That way, your seam will go right through the point and you can make sure it hits right where it should. Perfect points!
