Stars and more

You might remember these little stars from this post, I used them all up now! Feels good to make something out of leftovers that I really like :-)  As you can see by adding some sashing, corner triangles and borders I have them both pieced. It just took a little playing around and thinking time to come up with settings I liked.

This little runner got quite long but hey someone might have a longer table since this will go out for craft shows next year.
The leftover triangles is what I had to work with and they needed
trimming to a consistent size and then I added the beige background.
Add some borders and 'tada' all done!

I made this X Block baby quilt back in January and these were leftover cut off's and I just couldn't throw them away! So in a pile they have sat and since I am cleaning up my sewing room they were destined to be in a quilt :-)  After sewing matching pairs together I trimmed into 60 degree triangles.  Added some white tri's orange sashing and borders and another Neonatal flimsy pieced. That 'to be quilted' pile is growing by leaps and bounds. I am planning to spend a lot of time at the longarm in January.

Linking up with Freemotion at the River and Let's Bee Social-links are located on the left side. Be sure to check out all the eye candy this week.


  1. You are doing awesome using all the leftovers. Probably feels good having a head start for next year's shows.

  2. What fun projects and Vicki, we think alike!! I am always, always taking my leftovers and making them into something else! We just can't throw fabric away can we!!

  3. Great use of leftovers: I must remember this one.

  4. Vicki, they are all beautiful!! I tend to sew those odd pieces together and throw them onto the back of the quilt. . . and then I give away anything that isn't used :)

    HEY, I think that Xblock post back in Feb might have been the first time I commented on your blog!! :) Aww, we have an anniversary coming up!! LOL

  5. Incredible what magic you can work on those leftovers, Vicki. Such lovely runners and a sweet baby quilt. You are on FIRE!

  6. I love being able to use those extra scraps, especially if they are essentially the same size and shape. Those just call out to be used!
