Scrap Jar Stars Baby Quilt

Back in January during the Sew Scraps Along... Amber from Little Bit Biased shared a tutorial for Scrap Jar Stars....

I shared the first blocks of my Scrap Jar Stars Quilt HERE...

Scrap Jar Star

6 blocks have been sitting in my UFO pile, since...

I like to have a nice stack of Baby Quilts on the "gift shelf" of my closet... And I was down to 1 Baby Quilt a few weeks ago. So I decided to take a few of my UFO projects and turn them into Baby Quilts in order to build up my stash a little again... AND help shorten the UFO pile...

Scrap Jar Stars ended up being one of those Baby Quilts.... Tah Dah! Another top is done!

Scrap Jar Stars

Don't look too close.....There's a few crooked places here and there, but I don't think they're super noticeable with the scrappiness of the quilt... So I'm O.K. with that...

And I think this will be a perfect little quilt for a Baby Boy!

Tomorrow I'll have another finished top to share! Remember the Pastel Scrappy Star blocks I shared HERE a few weeks ago? They became part of a super duper cute Baby Quilt too!

Until then,,,, Happy Sewing! ooxx`jodi

A really cute quilt , i love the block I have to get the tutorial. Good idea about having a few baby quilts around. I am just doing a baby quilt but I don't like it. It was pattern and fabric I got about 5 years ago and never did and it is so blah. The person I was going to make it for didn't like bright colors and I think that's why it didn't ever make it but I had to use the fabric because it was expensive. Oh well once my niece has the baby and I know whether girl or boy I will make another one. Hope you are feeling well. How do you do in the hot weather. Blessings Sandra

I adore this quilt! That's a great idea to keep baby quilts done and on hand. My son's friends are starting to get married and have families. I better get on the ball! :)

Hi, I found you through Pinterest and am so glad I did--another lovely, inspiring quilt blog to add to my Reader! I love this baby quilt. I think often baby quilts are too simple, and babies deserve all kinds of cute fancy piecing like this--one is only born once! A scrap starts baby quilt is now high up on my to-do list.
