A month ago, I came across leftover half square triangles (HST) and decided to make a few into star blocks. Since then, I've been mulling over how to use the remaining HST and figure out a suitable layout for those star blocks.
Of all things, a design idea popped into my head while I was canning salsa. During a canning break, I had to try my idea out.
Obviously, I will need to cut some background fabric to fill in the blank spaces around the star, but I think I've found a use for the remaining HST units.
I'm still playing with the idea, but I like where this is heading. Not certain that some of those HST will stay on the quilt front, but I have no problem making new HST units and shuffling the less workable ones to the back, if I need to.
Looks like I may have a possible start for a baby quilt! Perfect timing too, as a lovely young couple we know from work, are expecting their first child (and they're having a girl). I'll keep "star gazing" and see if I can make a pretty quilt from these.
