December: The Persnickety Star

Wow, December has arrived, friends! Time for a new Lucky Star, the last in the 2014 series. The Persnickety Star is a really unique paper pieced star, with an interesting, irregular frame around the star to draw you into that center star, and some additional star points around the frame for extra pop. It may look like a lot of pieces, but it comes together surprisingly easily!

How are you doing with your Lucky Stars? If you're saving them for your next sewing retreat or a rainy day, no worries, but if you're making them, I'd love to see them! You can add hashtag #luckystarsbom on Instagram or Facebook to share them! Have a great day :)


  1. Oh! It is beautiful and would love to try and quilt this. Thanks for sharing. Rachel

  2. It's beautiful !!! I love it., I would love to quilt this. Where do I get the pattern?

    1. This star is part of the Lucky Stars Block of the Month club for 2014. To get this pattern, you subscribe the series of blocks, which wrapped up with this star. The series includes 13 different star patterns, each with paper piecing templates for both 6” and 12” sizes. To subscribe to the 2014 series, you can find that in my Pattern Shop right here:

      Thanks and have a great day!


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?
