Seeing stars

We’ve finished a UFO!  We had completed the stars for our last pop-up shop but that was as far as we got before the pop-up shop popped!  We used a pattern from Moda’s Candy pattern book which is based on 2.5 inch squares and we combined some lovely French General with Moda Bella Solids .   It just needed the border added to finish the top.  We do seem to just ‘tweak’ patterns a little and this is no exception – we’ve added a small inner border to better frame our lovely stars.

We made our own 2.5 inch squares (which didn’t take long!) for the stars.  Making the points of the stars meant there were all these small triangles that were saying they needed to be sewn together.  Since they were already matched and ready to go, that’s exactly what we did!

We now have lots of these tiny squares (1.75 inches square) to use.  They would look good in the back of the quilt but we haven’t decided how to use them.  They’d look great in a cushion cover as well.  Decisions, decisions!
What would YOU do? – let us know!
