February Lucky Stars Block

After enjoying January's block so much, I was excited to get started on February's Lucky Star BOM.  I actually thought this block was easier and faster than last month's, or maybe I am just used to the idea of making a tiny block since I made the 6.5" version again.

If you are going to make the block, I will warn you that the fabric it recommends cutting for steps 4 and 6 was WAY more than I needed and could have been a few inches smaller.  But of course too much is always better than too little :)

My plan for my fabric choices each month is to use one Flea Market Fancy print and match it with some coordinating prints.  Hopefully that way the blocks will be somewhat cohesive without being too matchy.

  4. That's the thing I find with paper piecing - too much waste. Your stars look great - I particularly like this latest one.

  7. Love your blocks! The two fabric-backgrounds add alot of interest. And I agree the fabric was way more than you needed on some pieces, but definitely a beautiful block!

  10. Ooh, I like the mix of prints. I've been thinking of using solids with black and white, but I can't decide which colors.
