Lucky Stars Block of the Month: The Prismatic Star

Hello August! How is it August already, by the way? This summer has positively flown by, to the point where one of my many calendars at home still shows June, so I really need to flip the page! As it's the first, if you're a Lucky Stars Block of the Month subscriber, you have the August block in your inbox waiting for some paper piecing fun this weekend. If you aren't a subscriber yet and want to join in, visit my Pattern Shop to jump right in and receive this block, as well as all the past blocks today. Say good morning to the Prismatic Star!

This month's block also has an alternative layout, shown below (although not sewn together). This is a block that's just screaming to be used over and over in its' own quilt, don't you think?

I'm a bad, bad blogger. I just realized that I never shared July's Lucky Stars Block of the Month block, the Swell Star!! Here it is, in all its solid glory :)

I also owe you a winner from last week's Fun Size Quilts giveaway, and our winner is: Alicia Merlino! Congratulations! You'll receive an email from me shortly. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!


  1. WOW! These blocks are stunning ~ and I love how much you can play around with the first block.

  2. These are great! I think I like the inside-out version of the first one even better!

  3. I rather love all your star blocks and this set with the secondary kaleidoscopes are fab.


Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)


Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a very busy nine year old boy and a one year old baby girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
