    Scrap Jar Star

    I am going to do one side of my bedroom quilt in this design and the other side will have "Swoon" blocks.

    I meant to add the source of the tutorial for this block. It's at http://alittlebitbiased.blogspot.com...-giveaway.html. It's a great way to use up those extra 2" scraps!

    That will be a very nice quilt. Hope to see the finished product. What is "swoon"?

    I love both of those blocks, combining them into one quilt is a brilliant idea!

    I agree on both parts... great block. And I've never heard of "swoon" either. Help?

    I had never heard of Swoon either so googled the pattern

    This will be such a fun vibrant quilt.

    What a pretty use for scraps. Your idea for a two-sided quilt is great.

    I got it from some folks on the QB who made 2 sided tablerunners. Twice the use without having to take up twice the storage space!

    Love scrappy quilts, and this will be pretty. It's now on my list. Not sure if I'll have sashing between them though like the pattern calls for. Will have to patiently wait and see. Good luck with yours. I look forward to seeing your finished project!
    Go forth and sew!

    I just Love your Scrap Jar Star block, it couldn't have turned out any nicer. It's such a neat idea for using all of those little scraps that we quilter's always end up with!! I hope you will continue to show us picture's of your progress as I would love to see one of your Swoon blocks too!! Keep up the good work!!
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!
