English Paper Piecing: Star Quilt

My first thought on English Paper Piecing (EPP):  "These ladies are crazy!  Why would you want to hand piece when you could just use a sewing machine!" 

But then I kept seeing all of the beautiful WIP and finished quilts and I started falling for them.  After reading this post I started considering the task and then one day when I was browsing through 60° Diamond EPP Quilt-Along Filckr Pool and came across a link for a photo of this quilt.  It was love at first site!  I am partial to yellow and stars so maybe that was the reason for the immediate infatuation, but non the less, I love the this quilt! 

At that point I know I had to at least try it, so I did.

It was much easier than I thought it would be and came together quite quickly.  I was hooked!  So I continued on...

And this is my progress so far...

EPP Star Quilt started- May 25th, 2011.
Estimated finish- ??? (hopefully before I die...)
