I wanted to make this quilt out of scraps from my other projects. The background fabric and all the yellows have come from my scraps. But I have had to buy some blue fat quarters because I simply didn't have very much blue in my scraps. This quilt has a center medallion and these stars will go around that, so all the dark blue stars won't be right next to each other. So far, I'm really happy with the way all the blocks have come out. My husband on the other hand, keeps telling me that only the 3 blocks with the darker blues in them look like they should go in the same quilt. The other 6 don't go together. I should also note that the dear man has gone on record as "not getting" BOMs at all. For some reason, using different fabrics and different blocks in a quilt just strikes him as "wrong". Anyone else get similar feedback from their family on BOM or scrap quilts?

Design Wall Monday-September 6th
Since my local quilt shop had to downsize due to changes in their family situation, I've had to look to the Internet for classes and block of the month programs. I love BOMs. This year I'm participating in the "Seeing Stars" BOM sponsored by Coun'try Junk'tion (http://www.countryjunktion.com/BOM.html) Last night I finished my September block. Here are the nine blocks that I've finished so far.
