having another go

Last week I was busy trying to blend a great mish-mash of colour together
and went right off track {you can read all about that here!}
And this weekend I'm having another go, just before I tidy all those scrappy fabrics away 


I'm using a free tutorial for these 10" sawtooth star blocks.
Amy from diaryofaquilter has made a great size chart for cutting these blocks here
- you can make them as little as 4" x 4" right up to 20" x 20"
My plan is to set them block to block - sans sashing this time!


. . . ah, now this is a bit more like what I had in mind!
and last week's version will do nicely as a donation quilt I'm sure.
Linking up with Cynthia here for 'oh scrap'

  1. Definitely a yes! These are real scrappy stars and I spy a little of the new AMH fabric in there.

    1. Thank you Monica.
      It was just a little frustrating last week ... another ‘false start’ with this mish-mash idea... so glad I decided to have another go.
      And am very happy now with how things are progressing.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  6. The larger block size highlights your fabrics. And they have such a vintage feel.

    1. Thanks Diann. These scrappy blocks remind me of something, but I just can’t quite put my finger on it! Maybe something from one of Gwen & Freddy’s books?
      Simple shapes & lots of random colour surprises!
