Sew Bee Blissful: September Blocks

Looking for the Oh Deer! giveaway?  Click here.

This month Lyanna is our bee mama in Sew Bee Blissful.  She sent to each of us a little package with a variety of fabrics in two colorways asking us to make any two (different) stars that took our fancy.  What a great bee challenge!

I made an Iowa star using this tutorial in greys. This was a fantastic tutorial as it taught you how to draw your own paper piecing templates.  You are not always near a photocopier or printer and this just let me get right into stitching.  I like that.


And then I made an Missouri star using this tutorial in blues.  I wish I thought this one through a bit more as I hate flying geese, but once I was started it was too late to back out.  Anyway, it turned out semi-reasonably.


I see that crazy little pucker there in the middle left.  I never saw it until the photo was taken.  Funny how that happens.  It's fixed now!

Lyanna, I hope you like them.  You're going to have one amazing quilt!

Lovely blocks - I really like that "grey" star. I started my first paper piecing project yesterday!

It always surprises me how we see imperfections or mistakes 'after' we take the photo AND publish it! Love the blocks- they are very calming!

Very nicely done! I love both colorsways, do you know if they will be in one quilt or two different?

so pretty, I like stars

Kelli said...

Stars are some of my favorite blocks and you did a great job with both of these!

These are lovely blocks. I always find a spelling or grammar mistake after I publish, despite proof reading! I think your little pucker is the same! anyway you spotted and sorted before sending- so all is well.

They are both fab, but that grey one is a stunner!

She came to the right person asking for stars...
