September's Lucky Star Block of the Month is the Echo Star, and if you're a subscriber, it's sitting in your inbox right now, ready for you to have some paper piecing fun this Labor Day. If you aren't, you can join in the fun any time right here! This is a simple A/B template block, perfect for some simple chain piecing, with just 8 pieces used to create the finished block. The block uses a little log-cabin-esque piecing method to create the different layers of the star. As always, you've got all the cutting information you need in the pattern, as well a fun coloring sheet so you can experiment with your coloration for the block. I think this block would be just gorgeous in a warm/cool rainbow effect!
The Echo Star technically made its debut back at Spring Market in the Robert Kaufman booth with two other Lucky Star minis and somehow I never got around to sharing about them! The booth was just gorgeous, with loads of beautiful quilts done up in solids, and I was super excited to have a few Lucky Stars featured in the booth. These three little minis now travel with Robert Kaufman to shows and such, as they feature beautiful solids from Elizabeth Hartman's Designer Palette of Kona colors. Happy Labor Day to those of you who celebrate!
