This week’s paper piecing blocks are in destined for the Quilts for Boston project. Last week the Boston Modern Quilt Guild put out a call for blocks, in the Boston Marathon colours, that will be made into quilts that will be “distributed those who would benefit from a show of support”.
So I grabbed some fabric…..
And went in search of some paper piecing patterns. I eventually decided to use two of the fabulous Lucky Star Block of the Month (BOM) patterns from Elizabeth at Don’t Call me Betsy. I signed up at the beginning of the year for the monthly paper piecing fix and I have been thoroughly enjoying making the patterns each month. I picked two of my favorite stars so far to make this week.
Block 1 is test block that we got in January, when the program started.
The block is made up of 8 triangle sections which give you a lot of options for playing with fabric and colour.
The second block I did was a simpler pattern from the series, but still lots of fun.
This blocks is made up of four sections and was really quick and easy to pull together.
