New Year's Day Mystery

On January 1st I participated in the Scrapdash mystery quilt called 21 stars for 2021. It was a complex pattern to organize and sew in one day, but I did it. 

I wanted to use up the baby HST blocks that were cut off when making the border in clue #6, and I turned them into scrappy friendship stars for the corners of the quilt. I also used up most of the remaining gradated blue background fabric but might have enough left for the binding. It measures 52.5" x 59".

Thanks to Kris for a fun start to 2021, and a great quilt pattern!

Lovely quilt! I miss Kris and her fabric shop just up the road - even her traveling bus fabric shop. I use to test products and patterns for her.
