January’s Lucky Star block


January’s Lucky Star block is a paper pieced block of the month led by Don’t Call Me Betsy. I thought that since I’m in the Simply Solids bee, I’d try another quilting using only solids. I’m not completely happy with my block so I think I’ll try again using a colour palette from Design Seeds or maybe low volume solids.

I need more practice to produce a better paper pieced block! Any tips??

These teeny tiny half square triangles finish at just 1″, this is all I was able to get done last night. The plaid fabric is from Flora and blue is from Hideaway, both by Lauren & Jessi Jung. You can find this tutorial at Why Not Sew?

I feel so legit!

Bending Pins Labels

Look what I got today, I feel so legit! I’ve been wanting my own labels for awhile now and when I discovered “Lillalotta” on Etsy, I was thrilled. They turned out so beautifully and I love the font except I with the “o” on .com were more closed because it looks like a “u”. Ug.

Things to do this week:

1. Work on hand stitched Farmer’s Wife blocks.

2. Put the binding on my Covert Robin project, add some goodies and send it off.

3. Take photos of Covert Robin stuff before sending it off!

4. Make an iPad sleeve to fit in my purse so I don’t have to worry about it getting scratched.

5. Finish quilting Backyard Jellybean baby quilt.

And speaking of hand sewing, I just finished the Ohio Star this evening, I love the colour combination and fussy cut center. This is part of Why Not Sew’s  Hand Pieced Quilt-Along.
