Oh, My Stars

Oh, My Stars
64 x 72 inches
Quilt of Valor
You may remember the pile of sixteen patch blocks (79 completed blocks) I made in July. From that stack of blocks, I made Twirling 16s and Crossing Paths, but I still had 23 blocks remaining. I used "waste" HSTs from other quilts, paired them with 5 inch squares from another scrap bin, and made the star blocks. The sixteen patch and star blocks came together nicely.

Other than the blue border, this quilt was made entirely from scraps of other Quilts of Valor.

Oh, My Stars is Quilt of Valor #106

  1. This is beautiful. I have 4 quilts that are pin basted and ready for machine quilting. I donate to the city chaplain who gives them to kids in the homeless families he serves.
