This block for the Lucky Stars BOM is truthfully called Black Hole Star. I cut out all the pieces in one shot and then started making my triangle sections the same day. I had 3 done and then I took a break and returned to it this morning to finish it off.
Hmmmmmmm........please let me know which ####### you like personally in the comments. Pretty please! Whichever one receives the most votes wins!!
For this paper pieced pattern, I did come across an issue with a couple of the pieces and decided to make them 1/4" bigger on one side and 1/8" bigger on the other. They were originally 1x3 cut pieces. This made my life easier.
I have looked around at others blogs that were attempting this block and I noticed that people were skeptical about those points all meeting up together and all the stitching going on there. So I am going to take my time with the "connections" I will encounter. It pays to be nosy sometimes ya know!!!
After the Black Hole
Oooooooh Oooooooooh.....I want to show you what I bought at the NC Symposium from 2 weeks ago I think;)
Linderella's Quilt Shop in Southern Pines,NC which is about 40 minute drive from me. I have been there once. I really, really must go back. Such a cute,cute shop! She was doing a special where you buy 5 1/2 yd cuts for $20!! Eeeek I had to get some Tula Pink for that price.
Birds and Bees line:
Bees Knees in Forest
Tree of Life in Pool
Ladybugs in Apple
Meteor Shower in Olive
Salt Water line:
Tortoise Shell in Seaweed
Do you ever buy a line and think I like it---right?!! There is a little questioning in the back of your mind,but you go ahead with the purchase anyhow. That is what I did with these Tula prints.
Now I AM SERIOUSLY IN LOVE with them!!!! I was looking around some fabric stores online making sure I had the correct name for each print before I added them into my post. It was like "oooh I have that one,and that one!" So. much. fun.
Although,now I just want the Swallow Skies in Storm from Birds and Bees.
They look so wonderful in person!
When I first saw this line I adored it. Then not so much. NOW I adore it again. Love hate relationship anyone?! lol
I know ya'll are dying to hear about my adventures in Raleigh/Cary Tuesday!!! I am going to keep you in suspense a bit longer due to some rain that we just started getting at this very moment. I would like to take pics outside and show you my loot and the uuuuber sweet gift Pam got me!!!!!!
Due to the raindrops, I also am not able to get a pic of the other side of the double sided quilt for commission. What a tongue twister! :( I am waiting for the flannel to come in the mail. It is due for delivery on Mon. we shall see.
Don't forget to let me know which paper pieced Black Hole Star you admire best!!!
