I was just thinking - I have not posted one of my Lucky Star BOM blocks for AGES! Wanna know why? Cuz I haven't worked on one of them for AGES! Yikes. Its weird because I really, really, really like them and I'm always ridiculously happy to look at them when they are finished. They just take so. Damned. Long. To recap, this BOM started last December with a practice block. Then, one per month since then. Technically, if I'm doing what I should, when I should, there should be 26 blocks. 13 of the 12.5 inch, and 13 of the 6.5 inch. I'm not doing too bad - I finally got July done. This means I have 16. So only 10 more to go. Maybe, if I keep up the pace, I'll be done by next Christmas. Sheesh.
So my friend A and I had a little sewing date at her house on the 30th. This is an EPICALLY awesome idea and I want to do it again. It gave me the time, space, and reason to sit and sew for the better part of an entire day. As such, I was able to get my July block done from Lucky Stars - both sizes!
|This is the 12.5 inch version of the July block. I really think its my favourite so far.|
|And again, I was able to use the scraps from the big block to construct the 6.5 inch version.|
