All caught up

Yes, that's right! With my yesterday afternoon marathon sewing I am all caught up with the Lucky Stars BOM 2013. Hurray! :)

The block for October is Chaos Star:

Uh-huh, the name says it all. When I printed the pattern and looked at the fabric requirements my eyes just popped out :) 9 different fabrics for each section. That means 72 pieces in this 1 block. It took me a while, but it was all worth it. I had all the fabrics picked and cut out to shapes on Saturday, so all that was left was sewing for yesterday. I'm glad I'm caught up so I can move on to other projects, like finishing quilting and assembling my Christmas quilt, and I'd like to start the Chain of Stars mystery quilt I signed up on Craftsy. I'd watched a few lessons and selected the fabrics I wanted to use already, but have not cut anything just yet.

What are you working on?

Hope you're having as nice a day as we do here in the Northeast!

I'm linking up with  Marelize at Stitch by Stitch for Anything Goes Monday.

'Til we blog again! :)


  1. Beautiful block, although it looks like a lot of work. But you did it! Well done!

  2. I had to work at counting all the fabric used in your wonderful and chaotic star block. I love it!

  3. What fun BOM blocks! I love the pretty fabrics, very nice choices you've made! You should also look for "BOM's Away" link up, they celebrate each BOM block that gets finished, even its months later as I have been lately, ha. Again very well done!

  4. What a gorgeous block!! It can be hard picking 9 different fabrics for 1 block but you've chosen really well and the result is a block that has a great 3D look about it.


I am truly glad you visited, and a special thanks to You for taking your time to leave a comment! It always makes me smile when people write to me. Thanks, from the bottom of my heart! :)
