I've learned to vicariously enjoy QALs/BOWs/BOMs by seeing all the lovely photos that folks post on their blogs. I was particularly enjoying Temecula Quilt Company's Summer Star Sew Along, proud of myself for not jumping in automatically until.... I saw Doniene's post about her completed star blocks!
Doniene's assembled blocks assembled finish at 16".... and I thought.... pillow cover! I particularly liked the reverse star in the center and, since there were only 8 star blocks in this QAL... I had the perfect way to have a 3x3 block grid!
I have a LOT of small scraps left from the CW quilt, the tumbler quilt, and the hourglass block project (still in progress) and since the blocks finish at 4"... I have the perfect way to use some of those scraps!
I did some sorting and organizing of the small scraps and made my first star block... it will be in the center...
One down, eight more to go! Thanks for the inspiration, Doniene!
