Seeing Stars

After the whole rethinking of this newly renamed Starry Night quilt, I decided starting with the stars would be good.  Wonky stars are always fun!  Actually, I had forgotten how much fun they are.


I am on a roll now!  I need 10 or 11 stars, and then I'll add borders to them to make the blocks the right size.

That middle yellow is a left over from my lone star quilt--it is perfect for stars!


I love using scraps and reminiscing about all the quilts I've made with the fabrics.   But when I pulled out that lower left, two-fabric square...I had no memory of using/making it.  Hmm.

So, do you wonky-star?  I'm pretty sure a whole quilt of scrappy wonky stars is in my future!

Hanging out with the only full block I've made so far.

    1. Thanks! This is a basic tutorial for them: http://thesillyboodilly.blogspot.com/2009/02/wonky-star-tutorial.html I don't cut squares/triangles for the star points, I just grab a scrap, play around with placement, and sew!
