Lucky Star BOM
First up is the first star in the Lucky Star BOM hosted by Elizabeth from Don't Call Me Betsy. This was my first paper-pieced block, and I think a did a pretty good job. Only a few slightly mismatched seams. Much better than my normal rate!
|Fabrics: Dear Stella, Birch, Joel Dewberry, Kona|
After my success with the star, I decided to jump 14 leaps ahead and write my own paper-pieced pattern. After seeing these iPad cases I made, a friend requested one as a gift for her mom with the Stanford "S" on it. So this is what I came up with. I'm simplifying it a bit and not doing the white outline, so we'll see how it goes.

These are all the rage these days! It's a "manly" case for Mr. T's new toy. I used quilt-as-you-go for the first time. Not sure how I feel about that technique. More on that in the full write up once I finish this (hopefully later this week).
|Fabrics: Kona in several colors, Joel Dewberry, Dear Stella, Alexander Henry, Madrona Road and a small unknown swatch thrown in as a bonus with an order from The Intrepid Thread.|
