Scrappy Stars

I was itch'n to sew with some scraps... I haven't since the Sew Scraps Along in January!

I think sewing with scraps is my most favorite...

So.... I got a little Inspiration from this book...
which by the way, I absolutely LOVE... There are so many fun projects in this book... I'm sure I'll be sharing a few others in the near future...

See the stars on the front cover of the book?...

I started with these....
{they're 5" square}
scrappy stars

...which turned into these {the white background is Kona Cotton and 5" square... the star points are 2 7/8" squares}
scrappy stars

scrappy stars

And so far I have 4 of them.....

I think this is going to make a really cute baby quilt...



Have you sewn anything Scrappy lately?

I just returned from a retreat with Mary Lou! You would have loved some of the stunning block the ladies in the class made. My FAV are the stars - they are quick and just so pretty!

Lynda said...

Now that is a cute block! Love all the Springy colors.

I have just finished some string blocks. Since I need to piece them on the diagonal I have still not done the match to get all my corner and edge pieces together. I think it will turn out great. It used up a lot of scraps.

Dayna at Precut Paradise said...

Did you paper piece those? I live the way they turned out.

They are cute. I would definitely use them for some inspiration later...except you can't pin any of your images.

Tonya said...

Kristin said...

I just want to say i have been a follower for awhile. I love everything you are doing! Keep up the GREAT work!

Mary said...

Any book by Mary Lou has to be full of fun projects! I can't imagine any baby not liking this.

Becky said...

Love these so much! Do you only have simply adorable fabrics in your stash? Somehow I have some duds...

Talin's Corner said...

That is so cute. I love your star blocks. It's amazing how centering the scrappy block with points looks.

Michele said...

Love these! No, I haven't really done too much scrappy sewing lately. Right after Christmas I did a very small scrappy Twister pattern, but I guess that was awhile ago! It seems like just yesterday!

This has to be one of the cutest things I have seen in a long time. Thank you for sharing with us. I would love to try this!

~Jess said...

I love those! I'm kind of intimidated by scrappy blocks. I'm always worried they'll come out horrible.

Sara said...

LOVE those blocks! Those fabrics are so bright and cheery.
Are they all from a certain line or just scraps? I'd love to have some. :)

Scrappy makes me happy! These are gorgeous and I do need to make some wonky stars for a swap!

That looks great, I'm almost ready to try and use my scraps up again and this would be perfect.

Love those stars! I've been looking for a scrappy project to work on once my current WIPS are completed. Thanks for the inspiration!
