Scrappy Sunday

I started on this one at our last QOV sew day - the star blocks are all from Machine Quilting Exposition's Quilt of Valor Block Drive. The are gorgeous!!!  I was laying out some ideas to make the blocks go into as many quilts as possible. It is always fun to tell our soldiers that MANY hands have worked on these quilts!!

I posted them on Facebook - and the top picture was by far the favorite.... along with some great suggestions as to how to re-arrange the star blocks.

So after today's 4H events.. I am going to try them!

I have also done a little Scrap busting... don't they always say Christmas in July? Well I have some Christmas scraps... I'm selling them... they are on Etsy -  pretty close to 3 yards of strips - that would make a whole quilt right?

There are more boxes.... someone needs to love and use these... and my piles of scraps keep growing... so love them please:  Here ;-)

We are off to a 4H kind of day... wish me luck!

Yup, that would be my favorite too. I would put the similar blocks as far from each other as possible... was that the suggestion from others?
