MOP Monday - back with some paper piecing

My paper piecing mojo is coming back... but not yet at full speed :)
So I did more traditional piecing and just some small pp blocks... but that's a good start!

-- MOP: The list --
1. As You Wish - no progress (progress last week)
2. Celtic Solstice - Finished (see past post)
2. (new ongoing project) Rainbow Starburst - 6 new blocks (see below)
3. Tea Towel challenge and PPV BOM - 2 new blocks! (see below)
4. Alice in Wonderland quilt - no progress
5. Happy Halloween wall hanging - no progress
6. Topolino quilt - no progress
7. Cardinal pillow - printed pattern
(it is my entry for May for the Lovely Year of Finishes! I don't have a picture of this because I didn't picked the fabric yet... but I printed the pattern, so it's already at a good starting point ;))

-- MOP: This week new blocks --
These are the second version of the block for April (left) and the block for May (right) for Jennifer's Paper Piecing Vintage.
I love the house block... so fast, so easy and so perfect for me this month for two reasons: 1. it's the only block for which I have only one copy in my special layout, and that's perfect because this month I am going to move in another state, so with this block done, I can pack this project away already! 2. I pieced this block last night, after we came back from a trip to visit a house that will become our new home!! so isn't that block just perfect to celebrate our new home?? :)

6 more blocks for my Rainbow Starburst quilt (you can find the pattern here).
As I said last week: I love that block! It's super easy, super scrappy, super wonky, super fast... and I do just few blocks at the time... I don't even know how big the quilt is going to be, or how many block I will need... I just cut 3'' squares and I put them together in blocks of similar colors... and when I have enough I will make a quilt :)

And now, link YOUR own progresses below!!
