Design Wall & BOMs Away Monday- September 23, 2013

Design Wall

Okay so I’m combining two posts into one.  It just so happens that my design wall this morning happens to include the finished 12.5″ practice block for my Lucky Star BOM. I’m still not happy with all the bulk that comes with foundation paper piecing.  However, the 12.5″ block didn’t have as much bulk as the 6″ version.  I did force some of the fabric to turn in opposite directions to minimize the bulk and help keep the points aligned.  I’m not sure if the instructions originally told me to do this or not but I did not do it with the smaller version and my points were not even close.  The larger version had most of my points matching so I’m happier with the larger one.  I think for future blocks I should start with the larger version.

  1. Oh, yeah – that works better for distributing the seams in a less bulky way. It really is such a gorgeous block. It’s going to be very, very fun to see all these together down the line.
