Hometown Stars


I am using some of fat quarters I purchased last month to make Ohio Stars for a Quilt of Valor that I am naming, Hometown Stars in honor of those hometown stars who serve and protect this country. 

The stars, 12 inches when finished, will be very scrappy.

When I saw the July/August issue of Love of Quilting and the quilt named, Stars of the Past, I knew it would be the perfect setting for these stars blocks. The top should be finished by the end of the week.

  3. I'm drawn to scrappy quilts. I like how a quilter can take seemingly unrelated fabrics and put them together in a way that makes sense and is beautiful. Your squares are turning out nicely.

  6. The Hometown Stars are coming along very nicely. I need to invest in more navy and red fabric. Really, honestly... I need it... ha! I will hold off for a while. We'll see how long I can avoid buying fabric of any kind.

    Your startis reat and it won't take long to make all the stars you need.
