    Hi Pollytink-

    i like your your idea about the clothing -would work well as a memory quilt - Dad's plaid shirts and that blouse I loved so much in the fifth grade, etc.
    the block is a variation of the Ohio Star. The block size is 9". My center patch was cut at 3.5". The corners were made from 2 pair (light & medium) of 4" squares, made into HST units and trimmed down to 3.5".
    The hourglass or star point units were made from 2 pair (light & medium/dark) 4.25" squares, made into quarter square units and trimmed down to 3.5".

    Thank no you all for your very nice words. I'm going to get the binding on this weekend.

    Your "misfits" certainly fit well together. It has such a homey, vintage feel. I like it a lot. The quilting is beautiful.

    Misfit blocks certainly fit in wonderfully in your quilt. I think it's lovely!

    This is exactly what I think of when I think "quilt". It is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

    Duh! I should have recognized it! Haven't looked at one for awhile.....googled it and there are a lot of variations of it but I think I like the one you did best. I LOVE the quilting motif you used on each block and tho you prob have a LA, it looks like one I could follow with a walking foot! I was able to save that pic large enough to be able to get a pattern off it. I can do HST's but haven't tried the quarter squares yet. I'm 81 and wish I'd saved fabric and scraps from years of sewing...clothes....too much moving around and no idea that someday I'd learn to quilt! And thanks for giving us the details of the block sizes etc.!

    A P.S. My homemaker was here today and we were sorting stuff in my sewing room. When she saw the box of scraps I've saved, she asked what I would do with them so I tried to describe a strip block! And there are also snippets pics and more! Such fun!

    Beautiful quilt - thanks for sharing. I'll wish for some of your moisture but maybe not that much

    That is a lovely variation of fabric and use of the Ohio Star pattern. Makes me want to cuddle up and get warm under it.

    A beautiful, cozy quilt. Whenever you snuggle under Winter Peace, you will remember the Blizzards of 2015. Well done Jenn.

    A picture perfect quilt! I have always enjoyed scrap quilts. Yours is very calming because you limited your scraps to a specific color range and then used all types of scraps within that range and the concept just works so well. I also like your quilting design. I'm glad you seized the opportunity to change course when you weren't pleased with your original plan and not relegate all your hard work to the UFO pile. Great job.

    your quilt is beautiful as is the FMQing... It is a very peaceful collection of fabric and hard to think of it as a scrappy quilt. Great job and thank you for sharing your finished work.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Very pretty quilt and quilting. This really was the winter for quilters. I had someone tell me recently
    that I was lucky to have a hobby because they were going crazy with all the snow and cold.
