Lucky Stars 2014 Bonus Block: The Blazing Star

Oh goodness, it feels sooooo good to sew on my Juki again!! I managed to get the bonus block finished up for the Lucky Stars 2014 Block of the Month Club at long last, and I'll be sending that to subscribers on Christmas Day, so keep your eyes peeled on your Inbox after the dust settles from your holiday festivities! It's the perfect thing to work on while the kids figure out how to use their new toys, right? :)

The 2014 Bonus Block for the Lucky Stars Block of the Month Club: The Blazing Star!

I'm trying to be a little more focused with my color palette and fabric choices for my 2014 blocks - I'm going with a mix of grays for my background fabrics, and then aquas, teals, oranges, and yellows for the focal parts of my blocks. I think I'm going to work mostly with solids, which should be fun, but I couldn't help throwing in a fun print from Brigitte Heitland's Comma collection for Moda in this block. I think it just makes the block sing. I cannot wait to start seeing your interpretations of this block next week! Don't forget to tag your social media postings of your Lucky Stars blocks with the #luckystarsbom hashtag, and you can always add your blocks to the Flickr group too!

Have a great day!
