More Stars

I hope to have lots of post like this one throughout this year.
And while poking around in my odd scrap box I found a wonderful "printed plaid" which immediately was made into a block and I just LOVE it.

Variable Star variation

This is the first of about 35 I am making from the Oct 2011 American Patchwork & Quilting magazine cover quilt.  Mine will be a bit different, smaller and all scrappy, but I will use blue sashing and gold setting triangles.  And they will set en pointe.  I'll be using mostly my cut stash of 2 1/2" squares for this one, I get to "shop in my shoebox" for them.

Stars in a Time Warp

I'm a bit late to this party (and a party it is) but better late than never!
Here are the first 4 finished and I have about a dozen more cut out and layin' on the felts.
I am looking at my stash in a whole new way and, rather lusting for some more fabulous new prints.
I really want at least ONE pillar print.
I am making my stars 8" (finished) in order to see more of this wonderful material.
