Scrappy Saturday - Maverick Stars

Over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge it's the last week for working with navy and dark neutral scraps. 
To finish up the blue month I made a few more Maverick Star (pattern here) blocks.  These have dark backgrounds to balance out the layout a little more. They were made in leader-ender style while working on other projects this week. I am especially liking the plaid background stars and feeling the draw to work with more plaids. Maybe this is an autumn thing? Perhaps with the arrival of lower temperatures the desire increases for cosiness and comfort associated with plaids? I haven't seen any scientific studies to prove that, but it feels true! 


This is the growing pile of Maverick stars. Click here to see the entire star block collection on the design wall. 

Hop over to the RSC weekly link up and see how the quilters are finishing up the blue month.

Plaids just rock anytime, anywhere...but when you need something snuggly, they are the best! Love your stars!

Your Maverick Stars are a favorite of mine! I loved the photo of all of them up on your design wall!

Plaid always remonds me of cozy flannel shirts, but I like your theory. Your stars look great!

If you go back to the top, and JulieQ's statement--I say "ditto"! :)

I love the look of hexies, but have not mastered the art of making them other than cutting them out and appliqueing them on to my fabric. I will keep working on them though. would love to win this thread. Thank you for the chance.
