Scrappy Wednesday

I had to search back to see when I started these - exacly a month ago.  They came about with playing with a lovely gifted bag of fabrics.  I have sashing and border fabrics with them now and hopefully this will get to flimsy stage this weekend.

I saved all the left overs from those stars.  The corner cut-offs were sewn at the time as a leader/ender so I had all those wonderful bonus HSTs.  There is another whole quilt here.  No, really!  There is!

More stars are coming together.  They might be smaller than their 'mother', but I will set them on point for a whole different look.  Both of these quilts will be part of our quilt guild's donation to the Winter Games Ceremony for Wounded Warriors at Windham Ski Center in December.

I'll finish playing with these and see what I have on the shelf to use for setting triangles and borders.

We had a couple of super hot days - so nice to see the sun and be warm for a change.  But we have slipped back into a bit cooler temp which will make for some great walking.  Maybe I can convince Bella to go on a 'walk-a-bout' with me.  Moe starts and then 'squirrel' happens.

Sewingly Yours,


  1. Well, you can never have too many stars! Or too many star quilts, either!

  2. I too love your stars. Keep up the's good for our soul.

  3. Those scrappy stars are really wonderful.

  4. I love those stars. Star blocks are some of my favorites...on the other hand, I have lots of favorites.

  5. Love the stars--great way to use up those scraps! Happy walking!

  6. Beautiful stars! I'm always amazed at how thrifty you are with your scraps. You stretch them farther than anyone else.
