Don’t Call Me Betsy - the 2014 Lucky Stars BOM Club

Great news! There's a whole new year of Lucky Star blocks coming your way for 2014! I've designed 12 new foundation paper pieced stars for the 2014 Lucky Stars Block of the Month club and I'm so excited to share them with you.

Lucky Stars 2014 - all solids!

To recap how things work, club members will receive the block of the month via email on the 1st of every month, beginning on January 1st. Subsequent emails will come on February 1st, March 1st, and so on. The PDF patterns will include detailed piecing instructions, with photographs and diagrams, as well as the block template(s). You will receive two sets of block templates each month, one for a 12" finished block and one for a 6" finished block.

If you were not already a subscriber for 2013, you can still join in - you'll receive the past blocks within 48 hours of your subscription and then you'll receive the remaining blocks for this year on the 1st of each month for the rest of this year. You can also subscribe for both 2013 and 2014, and keep the paper piecing fun coming through the end of next year! For just $30, you'll receive 48 foundation paper piecing templates. There are no additional club fees, that's it!

Need an idea of how much fabric you'll need for the 2014 club? I'm sewing up my blocks in a specific, six-color scheme, with various lights and darks throughout, and here's what I'll need, to give you an idea of what to pull together for your blocks:

light gray - 3/4 yd
medium gray - 1/2 yd
dark gray - 3/8 yd
black - 7/8 yd
white - 1/2 yd
super light yellow - 1/2 yd
light yellow - 3/8 yd
medium yellow - 1/2 yd
dark yellow - 3/8 yd
gold - 1/4 yd
light orange - 1/2 yd
medium orange - 3/8 yd
dark orange - 1/2 yd
light teal - 3/8 yd
medium teal - 5/8 yd
dark teal 5/8 yd

A big, tall fat quarter bundle should work well for the block of the month club, mixed with some yardage of neutrals or background fabrics will work just as well!

  1. Wow, so great stars.
    Is it possible to join in?
    I hope my english is Ok.
    Happy New year and
    Liebe Grüße Grit from Germany

  2. I love to join in as soon as my new debit card comes in. My old one was compromised so I will have to wait until after the 5th. : (.

  3. love the idea! totally cute!

  4. I realize this started at the beginning of the month, but I assume it's okay to join in the fun at any time?

  5. Ann, absolutely you can join in at any time! You'll still receive all 24 block patterns :)

  6. When you will send a second star in February? I've sewed the first, wait a second. Thanks for the project!

  7. Hi
    I joined this Block of the Month but haven't received my February Star as of yet. If you haven't mailed it then no worries but I was wondering is all.
    Thanks a Lot

  8. Question: If you print from the computer onto regular paper, can you piece on that or does it have to be on something lighter? And if so, how do you do that? Thanks very much

  9. Hi I joined the lucky Star BOM and I have not received my February Block. When will you be mailing the blocks. Perhaps you should post the mailing schedule, so the members would know when to expect them.

  10. Hi Charmion, your Blogger profile doesn't have an email address for me to use to contact you, so I can't get in touch with you about your missing Lucky Stars email, as all emails go out on the first of the month. Please use the email button at the top right of my blog to get in touch with me so I can help you locate your email.

  11. A group of us have been getting together and doing these blocks each month. such fun! We are learning some wonderful techniques. Elizabeth makes this fun. :) Thanks, Elizabeth.

  12. I'm excited to be part of this! Although -- do you have a button I can add to my sidebar? Thanks!

  13. Hey there E! I've made my first block (finally!) and having trouble with the bulk at the middle point. How do you prevent a huge fabric/thread bump at the center? I've pressed very well, trimmed thread, did the best I could with lining everything up.


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?
