Slanted Stars



The fourth binding finished in short order. I have one more to do, but I need to square it and make the binding. Maybe I'll get the squaring done this week.

I loved making this quilt. Just pulled red scraps from my overflowing scrap bin and started cutting away. When I ran out of that white-on-white, I was done.

It's interesting to go back and look at fabrics from the scrap pile. I remember a lot of these from past quilt projects. There's such a variety in here. And it also reminds me of fun times making the quilts. Eleven years of red scraps.

I think all of these reds were prewashed, but I'm going to wash this quilt again just to make sure the colors don't run before I give it away as a charity quilt. If there's an issue with it, I'd rather it be here than a disappointment to someone else down the line.

It feels good to get these done. Now I need to send some more out to be quilted!!

Great quilt ! Do you sort all your scraps by color or did you sit in a big pile with Penny and pull out the ones you want? I am thinking this pattern would be very fun in brights for a little girl too or in blues and grays for a guy. Inspiration for a Sunday, thanks!

I REALLY like that. The reds are so rich looking with the white.

What a dazzling quilt! Great use of red and white scraps. I need to do something like that to my stash, too. Have a super day!
