    First, I made the Multi Fan Star quilt last year. I really didn't have a whole lot of scraps left over, but did have a very nice chunk of 108" printed backing left that I kept looking at as a border for something. Finally, the lights came on and with a couple of fat quarters of darker reds and a lighter blendable I was able to use almost all of the scraps up to make this Cranberry Relish.
    After I get it quilted it will go to the Fisher House at Ft. Campbell since it fits into the red, white, and blue requirement. Really a lot of fun, but I still have just a few itty bitty scraps that, I suppose will have to go into a postage stamp quilt someday.

    There really is no sashing. It's alternating blocks of the LeMoyne Star block and the Single Irish Chain block...both on point.

    The Star/Fan pattern was called simply "Multi Fan Star" and was in one of the Oxmoor House publications. I'm thinking it was a 1994 or '84 Americas Greatest Quilts...

    Let me caution anyone who tries this one to NOT cut out the Hexagon Block or Side Blocks,Side Triangles and Corner Block until all stars are made and laid out so you can take your own measurements as to needed sizes. The directions that were in the book were way off for mine. I was lucky in that I had made a paper pattern using the directions before cutting my fabric. When I saw that this wasn't going to work I was able to make the corrections before wasting any fabric.
