    update to"work in process scrappy" and flimsy now

    I got tired of making the stars but needed to make it bigger, so just started adding to it. I had the 4 patches from previous leaders and enders, so that border was quick to make. And the last border (stripe fabric) was found in a bag of scraps meant for dog bed stuffing that was given to me ( I usually go through the scraps because as you see you never know what you might find ) and it was already cut to the size you see! just had to sew together into the lengths needed. Pretty lucky for that. this top measures about 56 x 70.

    OMG that is just gorgeous. It truly is a fabulous scrappy quilt. Love how you organized your colors for the stars idea.

    Nicely done. It looks fabulous! I love how you utilized things.

    On another note, I need to organize my scraps better. Your right, you never know what you might have that is already cut and ready to use.

    That is striking! I really like the organization you used to make your quilt. I also like the border finish. Just a wonderful project from start to finish.

    That is absolutely beautiful! I love your string stars and have saved a pic in my ideas folder. I too go thru the dog bed scraps and have managed to salvage enough usable fabric for more than one charity quilt. Thanks for another idea for scraps.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    GORGEOUS! I want to try this ... Did you use a paper piecing pattern for the stars? If so, would you tell us where we can find this pattern? Or put the "How-Tos" in Tutorial form?
    I am not a huge fan of scrappy quilts ... they are often too busy looking for my liking. But this is very artistic. Thanks for sharing.
