My stack of Stars just keeps growing. When will I have enough? Ain't no telling!
Here is all 54 of them!
A while back in January when the Island Batik Ambassadors got the Accuquilt Go 8" Cube, I started using the triangle die to cut up scraps from the projects I was working on at the time.
Yes, it does take more time to do this but, eventually,
I got this!!
It took me a while to sort through them to have light background fabrics and just the regular colored fabrics. Then counting them all out, eight each....sometimes I would sew nine (someone can not count).
Once that was all done I started sewing these stars in my spare time....while I was sewing the first few I got the idea to get out my Island Batik strip scraps, sew a few together, use my 4 1/2 square from the 8" Qube set and there you have it...the center of some of the stars. Since I was using scraps I did need a centerpiece for those that I didn't have a matching center for.
I also had various blocks I had made but never used so I cut squares out of them as well.
I have to confess, I have a hard time not having everything match. If you notice in the first picture the right hand side, the top right corner. IT DOES NOT MATCH THE OTHER CORNERS, it is driving me crazy but I have to keep telling myself that THIS IS A SCRAP QUILT.
I have to tell myself this over and over. I want them all to be like the yellow star but I have to admit that I do love the centers of the others, it is just I HAVE THIS NEED FOR THEM ALL TO MATCH!!!!
That being said...IT is BERRY season here and it has been raining so much and now that it is not raining this gal has been sick. I was sick last time this year with allergies and couldn't pick....this year is it a virus plus allergies...yep...NO FUN. Right now I am on Steroids and am going ninety miles a minute... CRAZY huh? Why am I telling you this? These stars are all set up to sew, so sometimes even in my sickness I would sew a few here or there. This is a great project if you just have ten minutes to spare.
Oh...I also put a little sticky on the top so I could keep count of the stars, I got tired of counting the blocks over and over when I would add a few.
NOW IT IS RAINING AGAIN....I think we are going to float away.
