More funky stars

 I spent most of Monday sewing funky stars. I am using up lighter backgrounds and leftover strips from other projects. I love finding ways to use up bits and pieces. I have noticed that some of my collections are pretty much made up of bits and pieces now, most notably my batiks. Time to start collecting them again, as I never get tired of using them.

This lavender might have overpowered the stars a bit, but think it will be ok when I am finished.
 I love this blue as a background and love how the stars look on it. This is the blue I used for my great-nephew Matthew's quilt.
I have about 7 more partially finished with a green background. Hope to get them finished today. It might be an interesting quilt to layout, as I won't have the same amount of each background color. That just makes it more fun!

Yesterday I sewed with the ladies all day. I finished the Potato Chip Quilt, and pieced the back for it, so it is ready to load onto the quilting machine. I meant to get a picture of it, but forgot. I will when it is quilted and share.

I'm with you, I love using up my bits and pieces. Makes me feel so connected to quilters of days gone by. Your stars are wonderful. It's going to be a cool quilt!

I like all the different backgrounds together. It makes each one pop.

Love those wonky stars! I've made more than a few, but never with pieced centers. Something else to think about.
