Another Paper Piecing Monday and it is another star. I may need an intervention…but not quite yet.
This block, like last weeks, is using the #opgivewarmth June colour palette that Sarah at www.nohatsinhouse.com set. It is also another great pattern from Don’t Call me Betsy’s Lucky Star BOM (this is from August 2013).
It is pretty easy with just 48 pieces, none of which are too tricky or small.
I am now eagerly awaiting Sarah’s July colour palette, but in the meantime I have paper to rip off these….
This month I have been having a blast making blocks for #opgivewarmth. Sarah at www.nohatsinthehouse.com set the most fabulous palette for May and I have been having fun raiding my scraps each week. This week I got extra carried away. I started with…
This darling star is 6 1/2 inches (for a 6 inch finished block) and the pattern comes from Don’t Call Me Betsy’s Lucky Stars BOM from last year (2013).
I loved this paper piecing BOM series but extra loved the fact you got every block in two finished sizes per pattern – a 12 inch version and 6 inch version. I had not made the 6 inch blocks before so thought this was the perfect time to give some of them a run.
I went with some of the easier patterns at this size. There are some beautifully complex blocks in this series but I was not emotionally ready to tackle them at the small scale.
The Lucky Star paper piecing series is running again this year and you can still get last years series as well. Elizabeth at Don’t Call Me Besty has fabulous instructions and each BOM series comes with great introduction to paper piecing instructions and test blocks. It is worth checking out.
So these are the last of the May blocks heading to Sarah. I will now sit patiently and wait to see what wonderful palette she has chosen for June. While I wait I will be dusting off my Starry Night quilt and doing a few more of these small Lucky Star blocks in blue and yellow.
