What I'm Working On...

First up:

I sashed and bordered the scrappy stars.

This quilt used quite a few of the little bits of pink and grey from the stash. Each star used one 4.5 inch strip of background and one 5 inch strip of color. What I did on the color was that I cut a 4.5 inch square for the center and then cut the remaining 5 inch strip into 2-2.5 inch strip. I then was able to make the star and only have a little bit of the star color for the scrap pile. I'm really happy with this result. I decided to not add cornerstones this time around (smiley face)

This technique is definitely a great addition to my quilting tool box - Thanks to Bev for sharing.

Maybe I'll start referring to these stars as 'Bev Stars'

Second up:


trying something new.  Larger fabric surrounded by the white. We'll be writing on the white- I'll let you know if its a thumbs up or thumbs down.

A lovely use of a variety of pinks. The black sashing really sets them off and ties in with the print. Do you have a referral for those a star instructions? I always have trouble with stars. Have a lovely week. June is YELLOW.

Your pink stars are so pretty and the dark sashing highlights them perfectly!
