Lots of gorgeous Lucky Stars!

This week, I finished up the March block for the Lucky Stars Block of the Month Club - the Ninja Star, aptly named by a member of the Tampa Modern Quilt Guild. I love how this block has come together, and I'm excited to share it with subscribers coming soon in March.

March Lucky Star block - the Ninja Star

But first, we need to get through February! I can't believe that February is nearly upon us already, this year sure is flying by already. BOM subscribers will receive their next block pattern next week, on Thursday, February 1st. February's block is the Exploding Star, constructed with four paper templates. And if you haven't already subscribed to the club, you can join at any time, and you will receive all of the patterns for the year, regardless of when you join.

Lucky Stars - Feb
I also used this block back in December to create a fun pouch for Katie. It's a quick block to put together, with only 7 pieces of fabric used in each quarter block section.

I love visiting the Flickr group, where loads of Lucky Stars members are posting their gorgeous blocks. I love seeing all the variety!! Here's a couple of recent favorites of mine.

  1. Yay! I'm so excited to receive February's block. I'm having such a blast in my first BOM :)

  2. Wooo hoo! My pouch is so famous. :)
    I'm going to work on my January block this weekend so I can be ready for the ninja star!

  3. I've been blown away at the talent in the group!! These are SO much fun! Thanks for putting it all together!

  4. I love seeing all of the blocks on Flickr. This is my first paper piecing and it is easy to end up with disaster on color choices with so many fabrics together. Looking at different finished pieces lets me see what I should do to make certain patterns stand out. I say 'should' because I have sewn nothing yet :-)

  5. So pretty! I have to get cracking and choose some fabrics for these… I don't want it to turn into one of those "intend to but never do" things - they are just too fun.

  6. Hee hee, love the name for the March one :o)

  7. just got my email. cant wait to start. Goal is to make a mariner start someday. practice practice

  8. I am so behind in everything ~ I've just got to make my stars ~ they are so so lovely.

  11. Where did you get your pattern for the pouch? I want to make some of the 6 inch Lucky Stars BOM's into those. I'm so glad I joined your BOM. Love paper piecing!! Thanks

  12. ooo! Can't wait for these to come my way :)

  13. This has been such a fun BOM so far. Like you I am loving the different variations of the same star. And I am chuffed to see mine featured above...thank you.

    I love the look of February's. Can't wait til the 1st. And what is that red fabric in the March star? I think I need some of that!

  14. These are looking so great!! Thanks for featuring mine!


Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)
