Next are scrappy stars. I was looking through a book from the library and fell in love with the little stars.
Since I have so many scraps cut into squares, I knew it would be quick and easy to make these.I used 2" squares, and my blocks finish at 5.75"
Earlier this week I read a tutorial on a quilt blog regarding string block construction without using a foundation or paper. I had to try it!
It worked beautifully! Finished block size is 9"
Here is the back, nice and neat. I ran a basting stitch around the outside to keep the stitching from unraveling.
