Oh those lovely stars

I am in between projects at the moment and so went looking through our collection of orphan blocks for inspiration.

I ended up with three different groups of blocks and in the end this large star block got my attention.

The smaller blocks surrounding the star were also orphans, or at least seven of them.  I made up the blue one on the right so that could complete the row.

That was all the orphan blocks in this group so now it is up to me to continue with something of my own.

I decided I would like more stars to reflect the star in the centre and this is what I have come up with so far.

I need to make up another six blocks to complete the round.

These blocks are only 6.5 inches square and so some of the individual pieces are only 2 inches square.  A bit fiddly but worth it for the result.

I am enjoying the process.

I think, by the time I add these to the quilt top it will be big enough to be considering a border row.

You have the most interesting collection of orphan blocks. I do think I'd like to dig through your stash!

Love the stars in a row - they're a visual treat!
