On The Design Wall: Lucky Stars Block of the Month


I continue to work away on Don't Call Me Betsy's Lucky Stars Blocks of the Month.  Here I have both July and August up on the barn wall.  I cannot remember if I have shared July but I think not.  Let me tell you, these have a lot of pieces but Elizabeth's instructions for cutting and piecing are pretty darn solid and the blocks have been going together smoothly.  I keep all the fabrics I use for the blocks in a plastic shoe box so I don't have to go hunting for them each month and I also don't have to look at them out in a pile all the time.  I am using an Anna Maria Horner fabric from her line Innocent Crush as the focal fabric for all the star.  I use the Stof basics text print in many of the stars as well.  Only a few more months of blocks and we will call this a quilt!  I have not done May's block yet.  I was super busy at school then.  And speaking of school, today marks the end of my summer vacation and I am back to work!  Eep!  The summer has flown by.  Linking up with Judy for Design Wall Monday.  Have a look down below for all the stars on my design wall.
