Scrappy Christmas Stars

by Nancy

Christmas in February? Why not? 🙂 I’ve been having fun doing a little scrappy piecing here and there with some of my leftover Christmas fabrics. I’m using the pattern for Spinner from Bonnie Hunter’s Addicted to Scraps column in the March/April ’10 issue of Quiltmaker. My version is a little less scrappy – I’m only using one light fabric for the background instead of a light and a dark. (By the way, I’ve been reading and enjoying Bonnie’s blog. She’s a lot braver than I am with color choices and scrapiness, and I am inspired by her quilts!) My hope is to make enough stars for a Christmas lap quilt for next Christmas season. When I took this picture a few weeks ago, I only had 3 blocks, but now I’m up to 12. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to post an updated picture soon!


Update February 22, 2010: I’m up to 16 stars now!
