6 more blocks

Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day is rather low-key this year. I picked up some candies and little things for the kiddos, then maybe we'll go see a movie later... that's all our plan for the big day.... boring huh? John got hit by the flu bug hard the last few days and is still sick and achy all over, so I'm not expecting him to be out and about anytime soon. But that's OK... this will give me a chance to work more on the Bushfire Quilt Project (see post below).

So far I have 12 wonky stars done. I have 6 more cut and ready to sew last night, but I had stay up too late the night before and after a busy day at work, I was exhausted! Mr. Sandman visited me around 8pm.... oh, my life is soo exciting! LOL

These blocks are really fun and quick to make up. What a great way to use up scraps! The only thing is my scraps basket still looks the same as when I started. lol Look who decided to pose with the blocks.... my doxie girl.

Have a loving Valentine's Day!!

I love these large wonky stars!! I really need more white fabric so that I can use my scraps in a similar way.

Your stars are coming along beautifully and they inspired me to try a few too. Mine will be turned into a runner since I'm working on another quilt for the bushfire victims, but I think I'm hooked!My scrap box is looking decidedly depleted-what a shame I'll just have to buy some more fabric!!

Thanks for the inspiration on these stars. Next week, this is the guild project, and I was having difficulty detrmining what scraps to bring. Yours appear to be neat, and clear colors - a great idea. Now I can zero in on specific fabric and a plan! 8-))
