    scrappy UFO finally finished

    Several years back I saw this pattern at the Sisters Oregon Outdoor Quilt Show. For at least 3 years, It has been sitting in one of my drawers waiting for me to quilt it. A friend quilted it for me and I just finished the binding. (I have made 2 or 3 small versions of this as baby quilts as well.

    According to Barbara Brackman, the pattern has (at least) 2 names: Vestibule (Ladies Art Company) and Square Cross (Nancy Cabot). It's a great way to use lots of scraps. The border, binding and the folded HST star point were the only things that were not scraps.

    Oh, that looks great! How big were the squares? I can see how it would reduce the scrap piles a lot.

    The squares were cut at 5.5, 2.5 and 1 3/8" (The last was folded for the star HSTs) The other was cut at 2.5"x5.5". I suspect the one I saw at the Sisters Show was somewhat larger, but those sizes worked for me. About half of the star points were scraps, the rest were ubleached muslin.

    I got the pattern from Quilters Cache where it was called Morning Star. Size of the blocks were larger, think squares were 6 1/2 or 9 1/2. It's a quick and good looking quilt.

    Thank you all. This is one of those patterns that non-quilters think is much more complex than it is. One of the great things about scrappies is the same thing as it was for our great-grandmothers. You pick up a fabric and remember what it was a scrap from. Of course, if you are new to quilting, get FQs or buy half yards of things you like and do it that way. I just noticed that a half yard will make 4 2 1/2" strips and 5 5 1/2" strips (WOF...width of fabric) Hmmmm It might be fun to make this up in batiks.

    Very pretty and a good use of scraps. I am trying to use mine up, they just seem to keep growing.
