Are your stripes lined up? - Building Blocks Tuesday

I've been hard at work on things other than blocks this past week, so I hope you don't mind if I show these Lucky Stars BOM blocks.  I never did a proper post about them.  This one for April is my favorite so far, and I would love to do a whole quilt with them - those corners would line up with one another to create a secondary block pattern.  It would be lovely!

Here is the March block:

I'm not sure what I was thinking choosing the striped fabric to be in there.  It certainly added a degree of difficulty that I don't think my skills are up to.

Just a quick reminder that the "It's for the Birds" Blog Hop starts today.  You can get the whole schedule here, and today's stops are:

Quilter in the Closet


1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!

Thanks for reading!



  1. Oh I love both of them. I noticed them on your collage post, but seeing them individually I like them even more. Nicely pieced. I think a whole quilt would be amazing. And, I love the colors too.

  2. I love your colors and the blocks! They are just gorgeous!


  3. They are both gorgeous Jen! A whole quilt with them! Eek!

  4. You're right that would be an amazing quilt. And your stripes almost match perfectly on the second block which is quite an achievement so don't beat yourself up about it,

  5. those blocks are awesome and I love your blue quilt so far.

  6. Gorgeous blocks Jen and love the fabric choices. I haven't done any blocks for a while now but I have 5 on the horizon just not sure when I'll be getting around to them!

  7. You are too hard on yourself! Close up, it looks like the stripes bend with the turn of the star; from far away, no one will notice. :-) I only just started mine but I'm working backwards from May. Oops.

    Love your colour choices!


I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
