Scrappy Saturday - Green


I first saw this star block over at Leehaven about 3 years ago. About two years ago I decided to mini size them and made a block 2.25". Now I freely admit that I am addicted to making them! Still!
This week I made a concentrated effort to cut some batik scraps for a few more stars using green as either the background or the star. These are leader/ender blocks and I put them through the machine between sewing seams of other projects, so no thread is wasted.
I am trying to remember to use more dark backgrounds, but seem to have a problem with that. I'll cut more pieces to sew next week with darker backgrounds!

Awesome Kathy! BTW Is that 2.25" for each part of the 9 patch, or the whole 9 patch?

These stars are beautiful. It's going to be such a gorgeous quilt when you finally put them all together.

I'm like that too. For whatever reason I am just not keen on the darker colours. These Alamo stars are lovely and I think I spotted at least one dark one.

being green of course they get my vote, how you manage such tiny blocks is way above me

Cathy said...

I love teeny, tiny - when other people make them! I don't think I'd be able to see the piece of fabric that small!

Anyway...awesome stars. What size quilt will you make?
