Scrappy Saturday



It's the green month over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, so I have been organizing my green scraps, and I also finished up a couple of orange blocks that I had cut out last month. Here are my newest 6" Maverick Star blocks.





And here is the whole block collection on the design wall.
I'm really liking the combination of light stars on dark backgrounds, and dark stars on light backgrounds. The more stars I add to the collection, the more I like them!

I love these kinds of stars - you do not have to have perfection for them to be beautiful - love your colors

What a fun twinkler of a quilt this will be. Definitely love the alternating value placement!

I'm liking this one a lot. I could do this! It would make a great "Vet" quilt (see my post).
You sure get a lot done, Kathy. Good work!

Your maverick star blocks are wonderful! I really like the way you have some dark stars with light backgrounds, and some the opposite! Very fun!

Oh my! You have quite a collection going there. They are beautiful.

Stars are high on my list for next year -- haven't decided on the backgrounds yet, but I really like what you are doing!

Ohhh. Those are looking really nice all together.

Your light/dark arrangement looks really good. One of these days I'm going to give these stars a try. They really are fun.

great star blocks. did you list what the secondary color is for green?

Linda Smith said...

Yes! Perfect. I am doing the wonky stars for my RSC blocks, with white stars. Adding the blocks with light backgrounds will really make it shine. Great design.
