Wonky Stars

My friend wanted to make some wonky stars today...
so we worked together...
and figured out how it's done.

We began with 3" squares.

I dug through some scraps and found some yellow.
laid it down there....

Double checking that it would cover the corner of the block.
Yes.
It does.
:) 
Sew it on.

Press open.

Trim.
Using the 3" square as a guide.

Viola!!!
One Star point....
Only 7 more to go!!!!

Two star points!

Oh....
Don't they look nice?

Here I am chain piecing those star points on!
Much easier.
PLUS...
I'm using some triangles cut from 3" squares.
It works perfectly!
Woo HOO!!!

TWO
LOVELY
STARS!!!

See how that stash of 3" squares comes in handy????
I have quite a collection!!!
What color do YOU need??
:0

I love the way they look with this fabric she'll be using!
Don't you???

After making some big stars....
I made some
teeny.
tiny.
tiny.
stars.
(using 1 1/2" squares)
So. cute. !!!!

I'll be making these for the next few years!!!!
Hope you don't get tired of seeing them!

  10. Great blocks to go with the space fabric. I haven't done the tiny size - but that would use up that over flowing pile as a change to postage stamp blocks (hey a few stars thrown in the stamp) ;

  15. I am in a class and last Saturday I made wonky stars. Only mine had ISSUES (or maybe it was just ME)I sewed backwards, upside down and even too small. But I got the process down (I think) - maybe I should start a "how NOT to do it" Blog :)

  16. Great stars...love the little ones.

    You make it look so easy-I tried them last year and it was so hard for me...too many years of cutting and sewing everything non-wonky I guess. :)

    Love the graduation quilt-what a nice gift and a wonderful tradition!

  18. Good start Beth! I have a baggy right by my machine and periodically I make a star. I'm up to 56 but I know I'll be working on these babies for years. Keep it up!
