Lucky stars BOM 1

Last year a friend from work and I decided to join the Dont call me Betsy Lucky stars BOM.
I was about to leave that job so we thought it would be a nice idea to catch up once a month to make a star block. Sounds simple enough right.

We also decided we wanted to do them using English paper piecing instead so we would be able to chat.

It has taken a long time but our fabrics have been chosen, ordered, shipped and delivered. We managed to pick a day we were both free. We had a nice morning of sewing, chatting, eating scones and drinking tea.

Im using a Happy go lucky layer cake and Kayley is using little apples yardage.

Here is my first block

I have a few issues with the colour placement but I decided that its just one star there will be eleven more so it the grand scheme of things it really wont matter. This quilt is about fun, catching up with a friend and we both thing it will be totally amazing to have a quilt made by hand. No sewing machine at all. Im sure by the time we are finished we might wish otherwise but for now its quite fun. 


  1. Wow! What a tricky looking star!! I like the fabrics/ colours you've used. It's fun that you are your friend are both making these stars.

  2. Your star is beautiful and I truly like your color placement! Hand sewing these blocks is a major accomplishment!

  3. lovely block,well done.xx
