how a quilt is born out of play

these 2 1/2 inch squares were gifted to me
and played along with my own squares
I pulled them by color
and sewed them into 16 patches

then I pulled some white background fabric
and some same color fabrics to make
the legs of the stars to match

sometimes the cutting is not the fun part for me
I want to pick it up and sew
but this was a task that needed to be done
so I cut for a few hours
not all are done but I got a few ready to sew
into stars
(like my design floor? LOL)

and voila
two little stars

then four little stars  hee hee
um what deer quilt???
(shamefully hangs head because that 
project has stalled yet again)

 I think I am liking this so far
I have in my head that 4 stars will make a cute baby quilt
they are 16 inch blocks
so 32x32 is a decent size
wth border or sashing or both will be a little larger too

then with the other 16 blocks (I have 20 total)
if I do a 4x4 layout
that would be 64x64 or a decent size throw

anyways for now I will play with the stars

I kinda wanted it gender neutral so that 
it is ready to go for the next baby shower

Love your stars.

Isn't it interesting how one quilt will happen when you thought you were going to make something else? Your scrappy stars are very appealing.
