Stars & Strips

Nope, that's not a typo.  What I mean is A Strip of Stars!

P2060010

This is (part of) the first strip in a quilt guild project.  We are being given a star block pattern each month and are to make a strip using that pattern.  We won't know what the forthcoming strips look like and we don't know what the finished project will look like until the end. 

Choice of fabrics and colors is up to us, so I rustled through my stash.  I happen to have LOTS of blue!  It's my Mom's favorite color, so most of the stash I got from her has blue in it.  Here's my chance to lower the level of that pile!

I really like how the blocks form a square in square when they are put together!   I now have the next star pattern.  Time to get sewing!

You can't go wrong with stars, or with blue. You'll have something good when this is finished.
