I'm on the way with a fun use of scraps - stars, thanks to the inspiration from Deana (Dreamworthy Quilts).
I really enjoy using up scraps and have previously made a rainbow quilt (Rainbow Connection 26/2/2014). This time I'm making the 61/2 squares but adding the 'star' effect which gives it just a different feel. I'm quite happy with how it's going so far - though it's not seeming to make much of a dent in my scraps. I may be making these forever!
These two are completed (looking forward to the quilting I can do in the square that is created as they meet too! The pink and purple ones below are on the way. I've done 12 to create the top I like how that looks but am not sure whether I may add more. They are great fun and very addictive to make. I suspect they will be very versatile too as the bright colours would even suit a baby quilt.

Until next time,
I love where you are going with those scrappy stars. Can't wait to see where this ends up going!ReplyDelete
Thanks, I think it does need a few more and maybe a piano border - I enjoy those too.Delete
What a colorful quilt and from scraps! It's going to be so lovely!ReplyDelete
Scraps can be great and I always feel a bit better having used some up.Delete
Great scrappy stars! The colors are wonderful.ReplyDelete
Hi, it's good to be able to be reminded of fabrics used in the past that add to the richness of the colours. Thanks.Delete
Beautiful stars! Love all the color!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jayne, who knew I had so many shades in my scrap stash?Delete
I can not believe you made this of scraps, it is so colorful. Amazing all those colors.ReplyDelete
It's surprising how good colours can look against each other too. Thanks.Delete
What a difference it makes to set blocks on point! This quilt is a good example. I love your spring colors, and it was nice of you to share the quilting time!ReplyDelete
Hi Julie, I'm presuming you mean the first quilt being on point. I like set in triangles and it does bring just a bit more variety to squares! thanksDelete
That is super pretty! I love the scrappiness!!ReplyDelete
