Making stars

I did a tidy up of my sewing room this past week and came upon a stack of left over triangles from making my Swoon quilt top.  I sewed them into half square triangle units and began playing with ideas of how to use them.
 
 
 I laid out scrappy chevrons and diamonds... then realized that eight HST units from each fabric is enough for a star block.  Finding enough fabric for star centers and more of the background fabric, decided things for me.  Saw tooth stars!
 

Twinkle,
 
 
 twinkle,
 
 
little star.
How I wonder how many of you there are... I will make. ;o)
