Lucky again - Building Blocks Tuesday

Ta-Da!  Another Lucky Star BOM block to share.  This one is called "Sunlight Star".  It was the 2013 June block.  Since my last block was mostly gray, I chose to make this one mostly yellow.  I love how it turned out.

But, I need your help with this one.  I look at this block and I really like the pattern, of course I like the colors, but I'm not sure I like it any better than the other Lucky Star blocks I've done.  So, it boggles my mind how the picture of this block has gotten so many views on Flickr, and before I even posted it here??  I only uploaded it on Sunday.  I added it to two groups, my Lazy Bum group and the Stitching with Don't Call me Betsy group (cause it's her pattern and BOM).  As of lunchtime yesterday, it had already received over 2700 views, at dinner time it was 4600!  The only other picture I have had reach 4 digits is the one of my Handstitched Medallion Quilt, but that was just over 1400 (and that took months).  Another oddity is that half of the people favoriting it are photography types??  This photo is terrible photography, so I just don't get it.

So please tell me what is so special about this Lucky Star block (so I can do more of whatever it is!)?  I really do want to know.  I'm starting to get a bald spot on my head where I've been scratching it. Thank you!

What blocks have you been working on?  I would love to see.  Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open until the first Monday of next month, but I will repost it every Tuesday until a new month starts.

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. The number of views is because you got picked for Flickr explore. :) (Congratulations, btw!) Flickr has some algorithm that chooses the most interesting photos from the day, and puts them up in Flickr explore. Tons of people go through the explore pool every day to see what's new in there, and so you get tons of views from it.

    For the record, I also think your color placement in this particular block is superb, and it's beautifully done. :)

  2. I'm not huge fan of yellow but this block is really really pretty :-) Love it!

  3. How lovely that it's so sdmired ! I'm not a fan of Flickr, but I do love that block, well done!

  4. Beautiful colour choices and perfect piecing - a very well executed block. No wonder people are loving it!

  5. I love your blue quilt. It has a feel that I have been trying to achieve for a long time. Now I have another source of inspiration.

    I added my image, but the post will not post until Saturday. Weird, I know, but I already posted this morning blah blah. ;-) I hope you can see the image.

  6. I think your workmanship is wonderful! I know how hard it is to make all those points match. I also think the colors work superbly together. You just do beautiful work.


I LOVE comments, they make my day! I may not always respond, but I DO read them...always.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
