The Arcadian Star - November's Lucky Star Block of the Month

Goodness gracious, how is it already the second week of November?! Deadlines and work has been fast and furious over the last several weeks, hence my absence here around the blog, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of writing and setting up posts in advance. First up is catching up with the Lucky Stars Block of the Month Club!

The November Star is the Arcadian Star. As usual, this star has loads of potential, and can be really quite unique depending on your color placement. Here's mine for this month:

I also made an Arcadian Star for Spring Market for Robert Kaufman, with a bit of a different look. I'm not usually much of a purple fan, but I really like it in this block!

We've got just one more Lucky Star Block of the Month coming up, for December, and that will be a wrap on the Lucky Stars Block of the Month Club! Not a member yet? No worries, you can still join in the paper piecing fun right here. And not to worry, I do have some new paper piecing patterns coming very soon through my brand new Craftsy class, Start Paper Piecing, which will be coming out later this month. Stay tuned!!


  1. Love this star, not too simple, not too crazy.

  2. Good luck on the Craftsy class! I've paper pieced a couple of times, but it still tends to scare me...kind of like curves. :)

  3. Betsy, I'm already a member of the 2014 club, but haven't seen the update for the November do I get the pattern?

    1. The best thing to do whenever you're missing a block is to email me at elizabeth(at) and be sure to share with me the email address that you subscribed with so that I can find you and get your email out to you. You can also always check your Spam or Junk folder, in case it landed there by mistake! Your email address isn't attached to this comment, so until you email me, I can't help here, so I hope you'll see this response!

  4. Love the red version! It almost looks like a Dahlia flower!

  5. Elizabeth,

    I just found your Lucky Star Block club, will you be doing this again in 2015? If so, I want to sign up now...

    1. Hello! Unfortunately, due to a boatload of deadlines this fall and into the new year, I will not be doing a Lucky Stars Block of the Month Club for 2015, however, you can still subscribe to the past clubs for 2013 and 2014 and get all of the beautiful block patterns that were a part of those series. The only difference is that you don't receive the blocks one at a time, but you certainly could sew them up one at a time! You can check out the details for the 2013 club right here and the 2014 club right here


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 :)

Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a mood teen boy and a chatty six-year-old girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
The Epic Sampler BOM Club kicks off Oct 1st
