Lucky Stars And Sew On

I am in two Block of the Month sew-alongs.  I figured they would be a great way to practise my paper piecing skills and a block or two a month is a great pace.  

The first is 'And Sew On' and is a paper piecing all to do with sewing.  The patterns are by the very clever and talented Kristy of Quiet Play.  Here are the first three blocks:

The second BOM is called 'Lucky stars' and is with the lovely Elizabeth of Don't Call me Betsy.  Here are the four blocks (Jan, Feb, March plus a bonus block): 

I know they don't coordinate. I doubt they will all end up in one quilt together anyway since I have already used my January block - it went into the Doll Quilt 13 mini quilt that I made.  This mini quilt was a lot of fun to make. 

The other three blocks have not been made into anything YET.  I think I may make a couple drawstring bags like Di did with her orphan blocks.  

So there is my update on the two BOM's that I am in.  I am happy to say that the Lucky Stars BOM was one of my 1st Quarter FAL goals and I managed to keep up!

Your blocks look great. I want to start the sewing blocks but haven't quite had time.
