Scrappy Stars is finally off the design wall, it's a finished flimsy now.
Pattern is Folk Art Christmas Stars
by Robyn Pandolph
I'm happy with how it turned out. Scrappy Stars is my oldest UFO, started 11 years ago. It will feel really good to get this one off the list.
The design wall isn't empty even though Scrappy Stars is a finished top, I've got the pieces of the back up there now.
The reds, blacks and greens were used in the top, the light fabrics were originally intended to be the backgrounds for the star blocks. But after making a few blocks, I realized the printed backgrounds would muddy up the stars. At that point I switched to tone on tone neutrals for the star backgrounds. The back will use up a lot of the left over fabrics, so other than a few scrappy strips, these will be out of the stash and into a quilt.
That's it for my design wall this week. Check out Patchwork Times for more design wall Monday fun.
