    Here is my large (84" x 84") Scrap Star. As you can see, it is larger than my pin wall at work. Used all scraps in this one. MIL and my son fought over it. MIL won. (teehee) She gets it first, then years from now when she is no longer with us, my son gets it. They worked this arrangement out. Her birthday (82) is September 30, this is what she is getting.

    I fmq-ed it with cotton YLI threads, variegated on the white solids, solid on the scrappy areas.

    Made up the pattern as I went along.

    That is a very pretty scrappy star! I can see why they fought over it. You did a great job on the FMQ.

    I often wondered if a large star would look good! Well you have answered my question.
    It's fantastic!! I do hope your son doesn't inherit too soon.

    Feel free to copy as desired! I love half-square triangles and how you can make so many designs from them.
