I have been working away on these paper pieced blocks that are part of the Lucky Stars Block of the Month from Elizabeth who blogs at Don't Call Me Betsy. I decided to do these in mid February so I was a little late to the party but I knew that I would have time on spring break to try them out. The patterns for the blocks, including the test pattern (a bonus) are super detailed and in 2 sizes. I am making the big ones (12.5") but the little ones are really sweet. Now that I am all caught up, I can take my time with the rest! I have really just started experimenting with paper piecing and I love the look of the blocks but I do find there is a lot of fabric that I just cut off. That bugs me. I have been saving all the bits from these blocks and I have a plan. Of course some people (Husband) would just call the bits sawdust but I have a plan!
The block on the bottom left is the test block and I used scraps of some text fabric and I should have paid more attention to the direction of the text print. Lesson learned. That is why it is a text block!
