February Lucky Stars BOM

I was so excited for the Lucky Stars Block of the Month last month that I printed off the templates the morning that it was emailed. I printed off a couple of extra templates at a reduced size - used my pencil crayons to colour them, then I cut them up - moved them about - and decided on my favourite colour/fabric arrangement.

I proceeded to spend the morning sewing and ended up with 4 lovely squares - each a quarter of my star. I pinned them up on my design board together, to gaze at them, all pleased with my results AND promptly left them there all month.

When in my sewing room, I would admire them and think how fun this quilt would be upon completion. NEVER did it occur to me to sew them together - like actually COMPLETE the block! Until yesterday, when I realized that our new block would be emailed today. So, guess what I did last night...

YEP- I finished it. Wohoo me! And paired along with my block from last month, I am thinking this is going to be one heck of a colourful quilt. Maybe I should tone a few of the blocks down?! Likely not - this bright colour thing is waaaay to much fun.

Happy Friday all! Linking up with Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
