Table Scraps Star

I got the star finished.     Every month at my local quilt guild meeting there is a table for members  to give away their unwanted scraps and leftovers.   I made this top with fabrics from that table.

Last time I posted about making the diamonds … see that here

Here it is with the setting pieces ready for stitching.


I sewed it together in 4 sections


here it is finished


My original plan was to do a scrappy border with the same fabrics……I have to think about that.  I never use a pattern, I do always start out with an idea of where I am going with a design but I usually make changes and design as I go.    It is 75″ square now, and it might be nice to make it larger so it fits a bed better, but I think I like it as it is.

Now I need to see what I have for a backing.    I’m looking forward to quilting it.

Happy Quilting

    Now that is a great look. When I first saw what you were doing, I wasn’t so sure about the product. I recognize the process, because that’s how I work. I love scraps. I love to cut apart and rotate columns, rows and geometric designs. I love to smash all kinds of different elements together and just see what happens. Congrats. This is cool, really cool. By the way, my Monday quilt group has a free table and I get tons of scraps that way. Most of mine go into charity quilts because we have great need in northern Wis. Keep on keepin’ on!

    Really like this design!

  3. The variety of both scraps and piecing in the diamonds creates a great design!

  4. I’m always wary of plain fabrics (boring?), but the way you’ve sliced and diced them is inspiring 🙂
