Lucky Stars BOM - May "Spotlight Star"


This month's Lucky Stars BOM, Spotlight Star is my favorite, so far anyway.  Not just the look of it, but the fabrics and colours I used, works really well together, or at least I think so.


I've really enjoyed piecing this month's block, I didn't have to use my seam ripper once throughout making the 12½ inch and 6½ inch blocks.  I guess I'm becoming a bit more confident with this technique and remembering my previous mistakes reminds me what NOT to do.


If you've never tried foundation paper piecing, I really recommend you try it out, once you've experienced the precision and crisp look of your blocks it will really inspire you to try out more.



If you'd like to see the other BOM's I've made, you can find them all here.  Of course there are hundreds of blocks made by others who have joined in making this BOM, you can find them all on the flickr group.

Linking up with WIP Wednesdays over at Freshly Pieced.

Happy quilting.







ps.  Just a quick thank you to everyone who joined in this week's linky party ((hugs))

I agree - it's a lovely block. I must get mine finished. I love the fabrics you've used and I admire you for making both sizes.

Your blocks are lovely and as you said the colors all play nicely together.

Oh, I think I'll have to store these posts away for another day but I agree with you. This is my favourite too! Well done & super piecing!
